Why writers should help writers #amwriting

This piece touched me in a significant way, and I just wanted to share it with you all, It’s not just about writers alone but about every creative art expression. I hope you are able to glean something from here. By the way the Dudley guy in the TEDtalk is super funny. Check it out ūüėČ

As a blogger, I understand the level of courage it takes to share your stories, your vulnerabilities, your hopes and your dreams. In assessing my time management, I include reading other blogs and giving feedback. It is important to me that others know that what they share is significant. I haven’t witnessed so much courage in one place. Not sure how anyone else feels about giving feedback, but I love it. For a writer to know that at least one somebody will say how their words impacted them is enough for me. By the way, I decided to follow “the writing chimp”. Thanks for the post.
