I, am a writer, and this, is my manifesto.
I write to explore and I publish to share.
I write to develop an intimate relationship with my mind, to make sense of that which doesn’t, and to explore the intangible in a tangible form.
Writing creates a conduit, a channel that guides and gives focus to an otherwise chaotic spillway of thoughts. I seek to understand, but to understand I must first learn. To learn, I must first listen. To listen, I must first empty.
A mind which is not empty has no room to listen.
I respect the power of language because I am a craftsman of words. I build cathedrals of letters and paint cities with vibrations.
I am always striving to improve my craft. I treat it with care, because my craft holds magic. I do not rush, because here, there be dragons.
I honor those who have come before me, but I recognize that we all drink from the same potent river of timeless wisdom, a place from which all writers quote.
I publish to share my creations, to give life to the lifeless and wings to the wingless. I release only the most flightworthy of work because I take pride in fine craftsmanship.
I know that my perspective adds value to the life of my reader. I know that others read with anticipation because, as I’ve learned firsthand, finding someone who sees the world through our eyes gives validation to our very existence.
I share my work to set it free and to amplify its potential to change the world.
I, am a craftsman of words, and this, is my manifesto.
I write to explore and to understand the intangible.
I publish to share and inspire freedom.
