A writer is…

BOOKS BY CRAIG LOCK

“A writer is someone who sees the light, motivation, and inspiration in themself and others. They heartily write from their heart and mind; for their souls excite their writing to help those that need motivation to see the inspirations in themselves too. Write to see the light from the heart, inspiration from the mind, and motivation from the soul. “

Beautifully expressed words, so had to share and aim for, aspire to  in my various writings
