Liebster Award and the Blogging Community

“A writer who isn’t writing is asking for trouble.” – Walter Kirn

It’s true. We writers write because if we don’t, then a chaotic mash of thoughts and stories get caught inside a place that is too small to contain them all. The release of words is a necessity for the sake of a writer’s sanity. The great Maya Angelou once said that there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you. For the writer, this statement hits our center, an assurance that other writers understand our passion and need for the art of words.

The camaraderie and support among bloggers is inspiring, but even more rewarding is forming bonds with those writers whose work you respect and who see the value in yours. This is why a nomination for the Liebster Award is humbling and why I chose to receive it and pass it forward.
