Day 143: We Are Artists

When people hear the word “artist” their mind automatically goes to painters, sculptors, and others that create something with a physical form.  But we create with words.  We create whole worlds, characters, plots, and we create emotions in our readers.  So don’t think of yourself as “just a writer”, which you are, but you are also just as much as any painter.  We use words to create experiences for our readers…some that they wouldn’t experience otherwise.  We make them laugh and cry, we give them wonder and awe, we help them suspend belief, we help them to release pent up emotions, and we help them to see things in different ways than they normally do.  We are awesome.  We are talented.  We see things in a way that no one else can duplicate.  We are a gift to the world and we need to remember and believe that at all times.  Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle. You have something to share with the world and you have to do that.  Trust yourself and your talent and abilities.  We have to go out and be the artist that you are and were meant to be.  You owe it to the world.  You owe it to yourself.
