A writer only begins a book. The reader finishes it. Quote by Samuel Johnson
An artist uses paint to create a painting, or clay to create beautiful pottery. A musician uses notes to weave masterful music. So many mediums are used to create masterful pieces of work that all can enjoy. A writer is no different. They wield a pen or keyboard to paint words upon their canvas, weaving magic within words to create worlds of imagination, full of imagery, emotions and conquests.
The amazing thing is that everyone here is a writer; it is the medium upon which we communicate. We write to convey our emotions, our thoughts and our desires. We come here to learn, to share and even inform. But we use words to send our messages.
The Wandering Mind is always in motion, thoughts forming and ideas floating. It is expressed beautifully here in poetry and short stories. So what is the need for a place such as this? It is a place to come and expand to master your abilities; to push your writing skills and encourage you to master your control of words. It is for the beginner who wants to better learn to communicate their ideas and thoughts. It is for the advance writer to challenge what they already know. It is a place for all to come together to help each other learn and grow.
It is a place for aspiring writers to come together to learn about the publishing world and to publish their own works. It is a place to discuss your triumphs and or frustrations. It is a place to even just let your muses roam. It is a place for people to write together in different worlds. It is a place, to just let your mind roam.
Challenges that you may find here, will be learning new words each day, then you are asked to use them in a piece or writing that you do. This will allow you to expand your own vocabulary. Other challenges will be in creative writing, where you are asked to describe an object or space. This place is for helping you gain confidence within your words.
Welcome to The Wandering Mind, a writers network created just for you.
