If this is your first visit or your forty first visit, you are here at exactly the right time.
Today’s post, after all, is about you.
Fifty years from now, a young writer takes a moment and googles (or its future equivalent) your name to research more about you. Perhaps she is writing a research paper or writing a blog article or maybe a 21st century style encyclopedia.
You have become a literary granny. Yes, YOU!
Maybe until this moment you never gave it any thought.
How will your words be influential to another generation of readers?
Some of you haven’t even given thought to whether or not your words are influencing anyone. Some of you don’t write for others, only for yourself. Some of you have tried over and over to find your niche, or to write a novel someone will buy or perhaps you are so frightened you have yet to share your first poem with anyone outside of your personal notebook.
Maybe there is a young woman in your life who wants to write but hasn’t started putting words on the page. Perhaps it is your turn to be the encourager of a future literary granny. Time and time again I find writers who knew each other, who came alongside one another to insure the words to continue to be written.
The world is waiting for your words.
This generation and the next and the next are hopeful you will become their literary granny of tomorrow.
All it takes is for you to be willing to write.
Just love the world and your words enough to bring your words to life in a form for the future to enjoy and perhaps, just perhaps, learn from as well.
The future world waits, patiently, for you to write your words today.
