We all have our secret moments. Moments in which we disappear into our own world, floating on a little white (or black) cloud that lingers in our thoughts. If only we could stay there for just one moment, before reluctantly returning to the mundane routine of our bustling lives. What if you could find a way to capture that moment? What if your personal narrative suddenly came alive, bearing your signature mark, your voice, your magic? And they can. That is what writing is all about, whether it is prose, poetry, fiction, or non-fiction. On the one hand, you could say that your thoughts are better off locked inside your mind, rather than immortalized on paper. On the other hand, a brave (or tremendously foolish) chap once said: “no guts, no glory.”
I would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who were brave enough to share some of these secret moments with the readers of this edition of Writer’s Ink, and free our minds from the metaphorical lock.
