I was told writing is a SIN..Writing is no..sin in my book...

Blog Posted:10/14/2012 7:14:00 AM

Writing is not a sin, it's a power many, want to have

Writing is like the tongue, as they say the tongue is a powerful tool.

It can switch many emotions in a soul, causing many to laugh or cry.

Now, it's up to you, on the form your using, your writing.

You can use it to sin, if you like. Or, use it to set yourself free.

But to say , it is a SIN. It is not a SIN to write, just as it is not a sin

to speak.

When I write! I write about feelings. I'm hiding from the world.

Or moments I'm in or see. I can watch a movie and feel the pain.

I can see children playing and write, I can see a couple fighting and

all I wanna do is write. The best part, is when I join a contest on web sites.

To help me find emotions, I can't see.

To me it doesn't matter the predicament , because at the end of the day.

Im going to put my emotions on paper. After that, I'm going to go about

my business. For my soul was set free the moment I sat down and wrote

on my paper......

So, my advice on writing......Do what your heart tells you to do. Write the way your heart feels and you should become a good writer. I published one book, with no ged, diploma and raising myself in the streets, since I was 12 years old.

I never thought I would do it, but I did. I published my first book and I haven't sold many copies, due to no one knows me. But does that means, I give up on my writing. NO....I'm going continue publishing my work, until the world knows me.........

I'm going to continue, because without writing....I would have never made it in life..............

So in my book.....WRITING IS NOT A have fun and write.....

Just a thought.....I hope this thought helps my dear friend......from afar

    I've never heard it was a sin, only a tool of great power. I know a few who call it a waste of time and I hate that!! Good blog.

    all groeing up I was told writing will get you no where.. But I never listened and I kept writing I just never showed it to anyone until I became a member of the soup family.. Now I am a published author of two books and if I did not have writing I would never have made it through my life.. Some people can not write and wish they could others can write and change lives with their words.. have a great day every one and smile big! cory

    Lovely blog and your life is inspirational. Keep writing, spreading your positive message. It is sure to reach those who also struggle. I am sad today, thinking of that poor girl from BC who killed herself after being bullied, a 2 year old beaten to the point of death for not going on the potty, a 14 year old shot in the head for wanting to learn and fighting for the rights of girls.... sad times.... there is a war on kids going on. Soldier on, gurl! Soldier on~ hugs, cyndi
