Writing is for Everyone

The joy of writing is eternal.  Writers have taken up their quills, fountain pens, biros and now the keyboard with a desire to communicate, whether it be in the hopes of making a name for ourselves in the world of literature along with such greats as Chaucer, William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, the Bronte Sisters, J.K. Rowling, etc. or simply to enjoy the act of creating a unique piece of writing. 

Never before has the world of writing been so exciting and available to all.  The internet has opened up so many opportunities - it can be a platform from which to share our writing and reach vast audiences and it is also a huge vault of learning .... dictionary, thesaurus and encyclopedia all rolled into one.  It's always nice to have a bookcase full of books but the introduction of the e-book is an interesting concept.  No longer is writing  limited to a select number of individuals, depending on education and gender - it is available to all who have the desire to write.


  1. thanks for visiting my blog!

    As you say writing is open to anyone these days and I look forward to reading your writing here!

  2. So true, what you say here. It's startling what kind of audience I have been able to find - small but real.

    You might find this uncharacteristic post by the Caustic Cover Critic interesting. It's closely related, about the startling changes in the ability of the ordinary person to publish books. Not so ordinary, in his case.

    Best of luck with this blog - it looks wonderful. Thanks for stopping by Wuthering Expectations - glad to know you exist!


Thank you for dropping by. Have a lovely day!
