Writing gives you immortality
Isn’t it amazing how writing connects people, how it can throw us inside someone else’s mind, desires and fantasies? Writing is such a powerful medium. Words are immortal. I find it fascinating to be able to get a glimpse into someone’s deeper secrets, their darkness, their dreams, their feelings.
The relationship between a writer and a reader is so intimate that sometimes it scares me. You get to know the most hidden thoughts of someone you’ve never met or even knew existed before reading their work. You find so many common grounds and similarities with someone else’s life. And you share their grief and their joy through written words. And even if they’re dead, they still live through their stories.
Whenever I read a blog post I find myself hearing an unknown voice in my head, with different accents or pitches, that talks to me the words I’m reading. Each story has a different voice. You may not realize it at first, but words can channel so much information from within you. Imagining that voice based on the words I’m reading makes me feel closer to that person as if we weren’t miles apart, but actually standing in the same room, having a heart-to-heart conversation.
I know writing is a lonely job. You get to sit alone and pour your soul onto the pages, releasing yourself from the boundaries of your body. Then you share those words with the world and you become eternal! When your work reaches the hearts and minds of others, your spirit travels from place to place, timeline to timeline, and, for a moment, you are not alone anymore!
