We’re coming upon the final days of the A to Z blog challenge. Today the letter is “Y.”
There’s yum, there’s yip, there’s yap, there’s even yucca, as mentioned in my post yesterday on Xeriscape. And, then there’s YOU!
So, this post is about YOU! The unique, wonderful, specially-designed and gifted YOU! You as writer, you as human, you as mom, dad, brother, sister, son, daughter, friend … There is no one else like YOU, even though someone may have the same hair and eye color, maybe similar facial features or body build, but you are you – with your personality, likes and dislikes, passions, hobbies, talents and abilities.
I could go into the scientific aspect of what makes an individual an individual, but I’m not going to do that (no time!), but here’s a link to an article about just that: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03/100318141536.htm.
Here’s another link to an article/post about being unique: http://listdose.com/10-things-that-make-you-unique/
From movies to music, we learn that in romance someone may one day say to us, “It had to be you!” Romance is nice, and I love hearing my husband say, “You’re the only one for me.” Although I won’t say that to you exactly, let me do say to you, my friends: “You are gifted, talented and special!” And, for this particular blog and for the particular writing project niggling at fingers to ink or type, whether poem, short story, novel, or screen play, YOU are the one who needs to write it! IT HAD TO BE YOU – IT HAS TO BE YOU! So, pen those words that are stirring in your heart! Get on that computer and let the muse flow from your brain!
Only YOU can write the words that someone is wanting to read. Y is for YOU!
