Is Writing Your Calling? Maybe Not!

We Are Not All Meant To Write writing

I know now; writing is my purpose. When I was a small girl, I had a simple wish-- to inspire people with my words. I never wanted to be a writer for the sake of being one. In fact, I'm the opposite of what I think a writer and author should be! I'm fairly quiet. Shy. Private. Reserved. So there were moments where I questioned if this was truly my calling.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

“When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.”
John F. Kennedy

message 18: by John

John Wills

Thank you for being a friend and we know a friend is one attached to another by affection or esteem. One that is of the same nation, party, or group that favors or promotes something, which is how we met here. I will just say you’re very special and a highly favored. I would greatly appreciate you’re viewing my webpage to read a full chapter and reviews to which one wrote:

"Not since The Color Purple have I read a book that evoked such emotions. John T. Wills possesses the ability to transport the reader directly into the life and struggles of his main characters story. I was educated in a way that did not afford me the benefit of truly understanding the significance of the historical events taught from a stand alone perspective. This book actually touched my heart and inspired me to increase the equity in my "dash"! Excellent -- Tonja Covington

Wishing you the blessings of peace, joy, and success…
