Words can destroy lives or be constructive

Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity.

They shape worlds, delight, inspire, provoke, comfort and unite—as do the authors, journalists and poets who wield them. This force can be used constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair.

Words generate ideas, inspire revolutions, changing the way we see ourselves and our place in history. Over the centuries, writers have had a lasting impact on people and cultures around the world.

Being a writer comes with a lot of complex thoughts and hours spent mulling over words. Writing is a lot like meditating, being peaceful and unique to each individual author.

3 Ways that your writing can change people’s lives:

1. Teach

  • Knowledge is power.
  • Sharing our knowledge with others unlocks a special kind of power within us.
  • When you write about something learned through experience or research, you make your readers smarter.

2. Inspire

  • If I can do this, so can you.
  • Start the domino affect.
  • Sharing your words encourages others to share their ideas, to start writing.

3. Entertain

  • People love great stories – to be swept away into another place and time, allowing the reader to imagine a life outside their own.
  • A dark story can be a cautionary tale, showing us what not to do.
  • Being funny connects well with your readers.

“I learned that by being entertaining, you make a connection

with another person.” — Robin Williams
