Writers are a different breed of people. Full of ego and yet, doubt. Dreaming big and finding reality to be very small. Have some hope, Dear Innocent Writer!
Dear Innocent Writer,
Your prose is amazing. Keep going! I love the vocabulary you so eloquently insert in all the right places and the flowing paragraphs of descriptions will come in handy one day in the future. Those adverbs are lovely and do a fabulous job of modifying your dialogue tags so don’t stop writing to go back and erase. This, there, was and were are common words of the English language. Keep going!
Wow, ten characters?! How original, unique and undeniably easy. Keep going! I love the cliques within cliques and the stories within the one story. One day it could be turned into a great Disney movie.
Write, my innocent writer, write to your heart’s content. Don’t stop for petty rules and silly sayings. Whatever you do, do not doubt yourself or second guess the words flowing from your fingertips. Do not believe it is too hard. Remember, Stephen King started somewhere too and you definitely have the talent to be unimaginably rich and famous.
Do not think of the internet, email, blogging or really cool applications. You are a writer, a lover of words, a mother of literary infancy. You are Innocent Writer!
And once you lose your innocence, it will never be the same again. Rules and doubts, fears and outside influences are all waiting to strip you of this purity. So, dear Writer, please stay innocent for as long as you can…
