I write because I always loved to write since a child, everything from songs, short stories, poetry and philosophical nonsense. Writing is a companion to my thinking which I do and sometimes I do way too much. I may not be the greatest writer nor are my writings anything but average and that is if they even qualify as that. I seek no prize nor do I worry about or seek to become a published author, for writing is its own reward to me. I’m happy if just one person enjoys one of my writings and/or finds one of them to be helpful or interesting.

One thought on “Writing is a companion to my thinking”
Hi Ray, thank you for sharing with us your love of writing and I have enjoyed your messages that I have read and I have saved the rest hopefully to read later especially the messages written from your heart. I don’t look for error in peoples writing like some do such as grammar, spelling and punctuation mistakes, we all make them even my Spell-check doesn’t know how to spell stopped and there is no word stoped, I forgot the second “p ” but it didn’t correct it. Being Dyslectic from birth I was unable to read or write until I was 13 and even today I have problems with writing and often put things back to front, but as I often say, I’m a cracked vessel, but thankfully God is the Super Glue. I like True stories, but enjoy fiction when written to show our great need for Jesus Christ, I’m passionate about the Scriptures and use them often when I write and I love good clean humour, God gave us the gift of Laughter and we need to use it but not to pull others down but of course when it’s over the top then we can have a good laugh and we can also use humour to teach Truth or show error.
Thank you again Ray and may you and others be greatly blessed as you share what is important to you that uplifts and encourages others.
Christian Love from us both – Anne.
