Living Your Dream

How are you living your dreams? It seems that many people settle for whatever life gives them. As a writer, I feel that people need to be given hope. How as a writer are you helping people achieve those dreams?

I write about disabled people having normal lives and hope that inspires people, especially other disabled people, to strive for that.

I am not a writer, but from my understanding, due to the fact that I am a dreamer, when my dream is in conflict with the reality, I am turning to the book full of some nice words or some positive stories, for there, i can find the courage I need and find my way to go on. For sure, the writer can not always write the nice things, we need some critics to let me recognize there are stil some points we need to improve to make a better world. There a lot of ways to live for dreams.

I write fiction. I feel that if my stories entertain they have achieved their purpose. I disagree that everyone has at least one book in them, I've known too many people that for one reason or another can't or won't ever write. They have no imagination, no drive, no "need to write." I knew a lady who claimed she wanted to write a story, but that she was going to have to take a class. Well, classes HELP a writer, but classes aren't going to make you a writer. We kept telling her that if she wrote the story, we would help her with it. Well, she had a massive stroke and is never going to write now.

I agree that nothing helps you learn to write better than just doing it and then having a bunch of thin skin repair kits handy, for when the critiquing starts.

As a writer I can help other people by writing about the genuine sites and the scam sites. I like to write about the different jobs online. I also write topics that will drive visitors to sites and how to monetize it.
