Behind the eyes of a writer™: A series, part two

Behind the eyes of a writer™: A series, part two.

painting by Amanda G. Wright Continuing on from a faucet of words, part one of the Behind the eyes of a writer™ series, the writer is a person whose faucet of words continue to flow.

Write with me
... as if I'm writing you
... as if I hear only your voice.

...when reader meets writer

When reader meets writer, nuances of meaning become interspersed as a vision is painted in one mind, relayed by a dream in the other mind, yet transposed. The writer knows how to allude to a holographic world—once secret, now exposed.

Writing involves a sinking into silence—that is loud enough to hear inklings of thoughts. Whether they be thoughts within you or thoughts of another person telling a story, listening is an art. As whispers emanate words, it’s a skill to listen to the message of the one for whom the words are written.

For, listening goes beyond the ears. It involves the intellect as it mixes with imagination. Capturing the imaginative style with coherent words on a paper that involve original ideas is writing.

...a faucet of words

The writer is a person whose faucet of words continues to flow. There is no on/off switch. But, the writer—an author of freelance ways of the mind—can also take a nap. A good nap. And in that slumber, words dancing (or not), there is an inflection that breathes through inactivity that produces the artistic work.

The word is a design conjured up by the intellect, and is part of a character of the life an author instills.

Justified Type is classier for online content: Copywriting standards


Do you use justified type (block justification) for your online content jobs due to its classier look? If so, have you been advised that you need to instead follow the latest web standards, which entail displaying all content left justified?

Of course, words in newspapers, books, magazine articles and ads are justified at the left and the right. Online, when it’s carelessly set, however, this block type can look distorted with extra spaces.

After researching the evolution of online writing, I'm perplexed as to why online writing standards could possibly be below typewritten standards used by the literary world for a long time. I have learned that online writing interfaces were—from the start—easier to program for left justification from a technological standpoint. To this end, they didn't follow the classier standards of the literary world.

Copywriters and web designers today can be rest assured now that modern writing tools are catching up, offering the easily accessible capability to use justified—or full—type. It's not only classier but more visually appealing to the eye. It does take more effort by the copywriter to tweak the justified look so that the text does not look distorted and hard to read at times. Proper justification is, in fact, a tricky technique to master. In spite of that, it’s well worth the effort if high quality, professional-looking typography is your goal.

What I said is not what I mean


I recently saw a quote which sparked my interest:

"I know you think you understand what I said, but what you don't understand is what I said is not what I mean."

At the same moment, I also saw this misty photograph, captured under the category of 'bridges over troubled water'. For some reason I feel the two have relation in what I'm trying to say to myself in this moment.

What words describe your chaotic mind today?


What words describe you in this moment?

Feeling like you woke up on the wrong side of the bed and need to restart your morning?

Feeling computer savvy yet you have housework to do and feeling your insides jumping out of their skin begging you to exercise?

Feeling like you would love to jump-start your business on all social media sites that you can think of, but chaos in your mind creeps in to tell you that you don't know where to start?

One of my artist social media clients told me this morning:

Sometimes my social media computer brain wants to walk into the woods and spend all day amongst the air and reality of the temporal world... to realign my molecules to focus on pixels and bytes.

I love blogging...

I love blogging. Simple as that. It feeds my innate need to write what my soul yearns me to write, to match images with words that create a work of art, to share my stories and thoughts and to get some computer time—I love my Macintosh...

Blogging a story is to tell a story that invites the readers to form a relationship with your brandDo you want your blog to be more successful? The best solution to this is to blog more often! To motivate yourself to write more, write more....

Simple as that.

The more difficult part is getting excited about an idea and losing the thought or creativity once you sit down to post it. To get inspired, to stay motivated, post every day... Habits can be changed by doing something every day.

Learning to talk to yourself: Your internal dialogs


It's not easy, but possible to speak internally to another person as if you have direct access to each other's thoughts. You can be fueled by the language that speaks to you inside your mind. This dialog can be a way for you to make things right simply within your mind with certain people.

Speaking the secrets of your soul is easy when you speak to yourself. When your heart is open, you are able to feel the truth of what you really feel.

Listen to the story you have to tell. You can read it, listen to it, and live in it as you would your favorite book.

You have many channels to your heart. The trick is to find yours—the ones that undeniably open every time.

Find the universal presence, spirit or love that resonates most with you and feel it hold you like a warm blanket. Then speak to it. Let it tell you, as if you are looking into a mirror, what you have to say.
