So, this week I have something a little different and new I am trying out. I am going to share with you my adventures in Vlogging. Depending on how well this goes I may make more, but we shall see. I hope you enjoy this and find it inspiring in your own craft.
My Personal Writing Creed/Code/Declaration/Manifesto
And in case you want to read it, here it is in all it’s written glory!
So, I am going to start this vlogging journey with something of my… personal writing creed or whatever I am going to call it.
My writing journey has come a long way from where I got my start in high school dabbling in poetry from some assignment that came about after translating some Olde English Shakespearian play. (The Taming of the Shrew, which incidentally is my personal favorite!)
I moved on, writing poetry as the need struck, sharing my emotional thoughts with the world around me. NaNoWriMo 2011 is where my writing really became “real” to me. Something more than a bit of poetry. I realized that I actually “could” write stories, and maybe some day share them with the world.
In 2013 I took those two pieces of how I felt about writing a bit further. I started to explore my life, and how different aspects fit together after the loss of my wife to cancer.
These elements were key in inspiring what my writing has become now. But… there is one final piece to that key, in the shaping and exploring of what writing is to me. The world of blogging. By blogging my writing journey, and following other bloggers as they share theirs is what truly gave me the desire to give “voice” to my personal writing creed/code/declaration/manifesto!
So, here goes… My attempt to put words to the vast feelings and ideas of my personal writing creed/code/declaration/manifesto:
Writing is a Journey,
An Expression of your Soul.
Words ARE Power,
Writing IS Ceremony!
Words, writing, Spring forth
from the Well of the Soul.
Writing is Discovery,
as we Explore the Intangible.
Write for the Love, Joy and Journey!
Write to explore, discover and share!
Write your path, desires and thoughts!
Write to learn, grow and give!
The creative process is a gift of the Creator, it is an honor and something to be shared. So don’t write to be famous, don’t write to make money, but instead, instead, write because you need to share the words in your heart and soul! Write because you have been gifted by Creator. Write to share the Journey and Power that are in the Ceremony of Writing!
This is just a little piece of how I view writing and I hope that it has inspired you in your writing journey.
Well, that was it, my first ever vlog. What did you think? Is it something you would like to see more of in the future? And, what about you? What would you say is your writing creed/code/declaration/manifesto? And… which of those would you choose to represent you? Yes, I truly chose them all on purpose, it fits me. **grins**

You have the soul of a romantic poet! I think it’s true to say that writing is the expression of the soul and it certainly is that vibrant nerve that connects us to the universe. It is joy and discovery and power 🙂 Thank-you for sharing!
Thank you! Yeah I think expression of any kind (whether a painting/drawing/ect or music or the written word) really is what connects us to the universe!
Living that journey and expression is such an adventure and brings us a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
I am glad that you enjoyed it!
I love your writing creed. I think it will strike a chord with all writers. We have an unending curiosity about the world around us, seen and unseen, followed by an innate desire to write about it, so that we may relive it or explore the unknown in our imagination. Thanks for sharing 🙂
thank you for your kind words. I agree with you, there is just such a deep need to explore and share! following the paths of the imagination and using that to explore the world around us!
You’re welcome. BTW, I just nominated you for an award. You can find the details here:

simply loved it, your voice was calm and composed
Thank you! It really is something I “feel” strongly about and felt it only fitting to try as my first vlog posting.
I am glad you enjoyed it and that I seemed calm **grins** afterwards, the idea of posting it made me feel anything but calm and composed
