GO AGAINST THE GRAIN – PLEASE!

Let me know if you think I am right.  

We are kindred, all of us because we are all human beings.  We are men and women. That’s a given.  But I see today everyone wanting to make sure that they are in line with what’s popular or God forbid – regular.  Don’t get me wrong I believe that there are some things that must be absolute for people to remain people (love, kindness, compassion, respect, non-violence, fairness, etc.)  But come on, must every writer be the same and write about the same things; say the same words, use the same current topics, the same jargon, the same usual, regular, boring genres in the same usual way…… drawing of man sleeping

I think you get my drift.  Even if you have the same topic must it always be just like everyone else’s?  For instance, many people with great writing skills they’ve not yet tapped into write about sex.  Why? Because it sells.

DON’T BE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE! GO AGAINST THE GRAIN! BE UNIQUELY YOU, UNAFRAID OF BEING DIFFERENT!

Please, stop and think about it.  You are a writer.  There’s a vast universe of topics and subject matter to choose to write about and all that comes to mind is sex. Wow, how boring.  (Yes, I said ‘boring’). You are unique and have unique experiences that make  your writing specific to you. Don’t limit yourself to what is ‘popular’ and heaven forbid, to what sells.  That talent you have is more than you know.  Don’t suppress it, don’t ignore it, don’t limit it.  The world and the universe is at your disposal.  Put it on paper and bring it to the masses who truly love to read a unique and good book.  When it’s finished send it to me.  I’ll get it ready for your publisher. You know that I’m here for you.
