If you would have told me I would be an Author when I was in high school and that I would eventually write eBooks, I would have looked at you as if you had two heads.

Why?

Because my writing was pathetic. I was too concerned with where an adverb, adjective, and noun was placed because of the English teachers I had. The words never seemed to flow even though I spent hours writing my compositions. This would have been okay but my older sister could sit down and in 5 minutes knock out an A paper. Frustrating? Oh yeah.

It wasn’t until the thought hit me “write how I talk” that I could put two sentences together that sounded fairly decent.

So when I hear people say, “I can’t write” what they’re really saying is “some dumb yahoo” stifled their inner genius!

I honestly believe everyone can tell a good story if they “write how they talk.”

Will they?

No and that’s a shame. I would love to hear those stories. As would other people in the world. What joins us together is our stories.

Talk from your heart and the world will hear its beat and buy every eBook you write.

As always, I wish you “a good read,”
