A great long time ago I read something that has inspired my writing for years now. Someone I don't know wrote: Climb a mountain...then write about it.
In other words, have an experience...then share that experience with the world. Your life experiences, in case you didn't know this, are worthy of being shared.
This was sweet advice for the writer me. See, once upon a time I tried valiantly to write articles that ESSENCE magazine would publish. So I wrote about things far removed from my own personal experiences, things that I imagined ESSENCE readers needed or wanted to read. The writing was gawdawful! It was stiff, dry, and dull. In a word, it was BORRRRRRINNNG!
