True writing comes from within the author.
Writing comes from a place inside every author, a unique offering from our own beliefs and ideas. It is an expression of how we feel and what we relate to that makes our writing what it is, that in turn offers the reader a glimpse into our own desires and dreams. It is when we start to look at writing on a commercial basis that these gates of expression start to close. We look and comment on our own unique style to determine whether it is good for all to consume, being also the judge rather than the innocent person who writes from heart and individual belief. We may begin to turn our work into something else, an advertisement or a persuasion to make a name for ourselves.
What is lost at the core of this commercialism is the essence of the original choice to write. The enjoyment to put words on paper becomes a chore to reach an audience, no one really getting any value from the work at hand, it later forgotten as mere fad and hype. The commercialists words are written by command, to set procedures, made to all sound the same as the next who wishes to take advantage of the others fame.
When we write an article or book from feeling, should we really question its value on a commercial basis, or should we let it flow with all that comes from within, from the heart?
There are many articles today to persuade our minds on how to write the perfect way to draw people in as an audience. Put the right header on and you can attract them all in an instant, leading them astray with the words that follow. A true article is seen by someone who seeks what it has to offer. One simple word alone could draw them in for curiosity, the words within showing them true value of the writer and how they feel from their heart.
That is what people want to read. Not an advertisement that seeks only to gain one hundred views, but an interesting work that gets their mind to think, to dream and desire. Just because an article gets attention does not mean it is for the right reasons. There has been many a time that a book with so much hype in advertisement, fails to reach the audience who merely reply with words of disappointment to find that it is not what they had envisioned to find. True words of the author will be seen from within the text, it will impact people enough to pass the information on to others that will in turn find interest in the words based on their own needs. The advertisement will only help to get your book seen, but if it is not a book from within and does not hold true value in its words, it will fall short on expectation and perhaps it will only have been a very expensive endeavor.
In the end, the true heart of the writer will be seen. Value does not come from worth of sales, but from the words of the author who is seen for what they have to offer and what they believe, such words that come from the heart.
