Writing Today Is An Act of Courage

As writers, we are called on to be courageous in many ways. We must overcome our fears of putting our stories out into the world and whether the world will accept them. To overcome that, we make a personal contract with ourselves to write for ourselves whether anyone else cares or not.

In this age of fragile souls and more fragile people, we must find the courage to speak our truth and remain committed to free expression, even as it thrills some readers and offends others. It’s not our goal or purpose to offend, but to open the world to wider perspectives.

Finally, writing today is an act of courage in an era when nations that call themselves free practice censorship on the regular or, worse yet, hire for-profit corporations to do it for them. At least the tyrants of the past were openly tyrannical and didn’t cloak themselves in support of freedom.

Yes, if you are a writer, you are courageous…you must be! Yet, as writers from time immemorial have, getting what’s inside you out is worth every risk.

Keep on warrioring on for your truth. Kept on supporting others who do too; even those you don’t enjoy or agree with. For the word is still mightier than the sword, as Ben Franklin said, and humanity is on the precipice of a new future. It’s all writers on deck and all ideas considered to see that through.

Stay inspired!

About Ray Davis

I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams. Ray holds a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Secondary Education in Social Studies from University of Kansas. He lives in Framingham, MA with his wife and his black lab, Mia.
