Writers and Experiences

“Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works.”
—Virginia Woolf

 

“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

 

 

As a writer, do you believe that every new experience added to your life’s resume can add value to your writing?

A new perspective.  A new sensation.

An added dimension.  A new layer.

New…everything.

Isn’t it amazing how much of our experiences actually end up in our stories?  How each new experience changes us however minute?

Life can be so rich and enriching…if we allow it to be.

As writers, new experiences are what make our stories come alive.   For some readers, these may be the only ways they can experience new things.  New places.  Meet new people.

Our writing can also heal.  Unite.  End wars and disputes.

So, if you’d ever questioned whether or not your experiences aren’t important…

Think again.

Our roles as writers in civilization are crucial.

Don’t hold back.  Get out there and experience life with an open mind.

The world may depend on it.

“The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.” -Albert Camus
