Promote what you love

promote what you love Life is too short to spend it bemoaning, belittling and generally decrying everything that YOU personally think is the absolute pits. Before you start screaming about how ‘xxx xxx’ is going to contribute to the sewage pool of the modern writing industry growing or the standard of available books falling stop for a moment and consider. Could I actually instead be spending this time positively promoting that which I support rather than flooding the airwaves with negativity?

There are very few absolute truths and that means the majority of things you read and hear are opinions. Not everyone will share your view or agree with you, that doesn’t make them wrong, or less than you it simply means they don’t agree with you.

So lets not waste any more time bashing what we hate and instead lets spend the time promoting what we love. For me, what I love is  writing, so I pose these writing related questions to you.

What genre, subject matter, and themes do you love to write and to read in others writings?

What writing styles do you love – Are you short and to the point or do you love flowery prose?

What exciting new opportunities and changes are occurring that will have a positive impact on established and up and coming writers?

There’s so much to be optomisitc about – let gets positive

      Thanks Jim. I’m feeling all positive and optimistic. So much of what we see is negative, not only in the media but on discussion groups, in threads on blogs. They are filled with naysaying, pessimism and deriding of others. Well I say yahoo sucks to that. Time to start focusing on the positive and using that good energy to be productive.

    I couldn’t agree more! I like to think there is light and hope at the end of the tunnel instead of more darkness.
