Are you finding yourself wondering how to truly impact your reader through your stories?

Follwers“A good writer leads his reader to the mountain-top.  A great writer allows the reader the view for themselves.”  Ralph McClaugherty
With millions of blogs available, it is often difficult to discover new ways to reach loyal readers of quality who truly seek to follow your blog on a long term basis.  One of the best things that you can do for yourself as a story writer is to develop your absolute goal first, and then write according to that goal.
For instance, develop a theme.  Readers who are loyal want to count on visiting your blog and taking something of value away from it.  If you write on too many and too broad a subject matter, your readers will not…

I fall in love with people’s passion.

I fall in love with people’s passion.

By Lauren Hunt

With the way they light up when they talk about what matters to them. I fall in love with a colorful sky and the way the wind makes the leaves fall like rain. I fall in love with moments, when the song and the mood and the people are just right. I fall in love with books, with the stories that make me want to run out into the world and experience every joy and pain it has to offer. I have loved all these things without waiting for them to love me back, and you will be no different. If it is an unrequited, one-sided kind of love, I will appreciate you for the beauty you have brought into my life and remember you like a line from a book or a fading sky.

Look at You by

Look at You

By Erica Atje

Nothing is more fun than sit on a terrace and watch people passing by not knowing you’re watching them. I can’t help myself thinking up stories for those people. I would think, for example; he doesn’t have to say anything at home, she’s the boss. Or I’m making up the conversation they’re having. Some people I believe to be some kind of ugly on the outside, but that’s just my first impression and my taste. When people don’t look so nice on the outside, in my eyes, they sure can me beautiful on the inside. I tend to say just to kid; ‘He looks so ugly he must be nice.’

Once, when I was about 19 years of age, a new girl entered the classroom. She didn’t look very attractive, but then I got to know her. She was a laugh you can’t imagine. I even didn’t look at her as unattractive anymore, she was just another girl but hilarious!

Then a new boy entered the classroom. Wow, he was a real hunk (did I write this okay?). But then he started talking… I really didn’t like his accent at all. Instantly this hunk was turned into a, I can’t find the word for it, but into a not so attractive person to me.

When I lived in Utrecht I always saw this beggar sitting by one of the canals. I really thought he was a wanderer, but then I learned this wasn’t true. In fact this man owned his own home and it was a big house too. He had lots of money and the only thing he liked doing was to go into town and be amongst people. The man was well educated but didn’t like the system. He didn’t mind his clothes either, that’s why I thought he was a beggar. But he just liked playing his violin to entertain the people.

I always have a first impression of people, but I don’t stick to it. It’s just a first impression. Once you start knowing a person by talking to them and really listening, then you can get a real good impression of how they really are.

Now I have a question for you. It’s a difficult one, because I tried this one in Dutch too and people didn’t understand what I meant. So please read this carefully starting with a small introduction.

People, when they see me, think I’m very confident and have a lot of friends so I don’t have time for them. Because I wear black most of the time and my eyes with black lining, some people are scared of me. This is what people told me.

Erica Eyes Aat RietdijkBut, here’s my question; Don’t you want to look through the eyes of someone else, being yourself, and then look at you while you walk in the streets? So let me try to say it differently. You and your feelings, your thoughts are in somebody else looking with your own eyes at you, in body, walking by.

Do you understand what I mean???

I would like to know, in my case, what I would think about me when I saw myself walking by. Would I be scared of me? Would I think; ‘What a lovely woman?’ What would my first impression be of me?

Aren’t you curious about what you would think when you saw yourself walking by? What would you think?
