As you might imagine, I frequent quite a few writing sites. Each one of them are chock full of great information such as: How to write a book, how to get an agent, how to write a query letter, how to market your business and so on.
The one thing I never see is any of these writers musing everyday events, or world politics etc. The technicality of writing takes precedence over the writing blogs and websites. I have ideas for several blogs just on the events that have transpired on”The View”.
Have we become too politically correct to have an opinion? I don’t know about you, but reading the pros or cons on whether to write a book in first person or third person is nice, but it’s not what gave me a burning passion for writing.
The next time you decide to play it safe and write about dangling participles, go ahead…write about something that really means something to you. Being a writer means taking chances-take it.
