Write About your World

One of the first Kindle books I actually bought and paid for was “Rumors of Water–Thoughts on Creativity and Writing” by L.L. Barket. The title does not hint at the valuable nuggets inside this book. This is a book about writing–writing about your world. The lessons are woven right into the stories. The author writes about her experiences in her every day world, which consists of teaching her two daughters at home. Lest you think this would be scarce material to write about, she surprises us. The stories spring from their lives, and the language beautiful. Did you know you can weave a wonderful story around tea and flowers and picking colorful vegetables? It is true.

Each of the book’s seven headings tells part of the story:

Momentum
Voice
Habits
Structure
Publishing
Glitches
Time

The one big take away from this book, is that all of us have a story. Our stories–yours and mine–are stories that need telling, and there are people that need to hear them.
