Don't Let The Passion Of Writing Run Out Of Ink

Don't Let The Passion Of Writing Run Out Of Ink

Writing is on a path to extinction and that is quite dangerous to the survival of mankind.

Don't Let The Passion Of Writing Run Out Of Ink

What came first, the book or the movie?

Similar to the question the chicken or the egg. You have to have one to produce the other. That is the same with books and movies. Most blockbusters movies have come from writing the thoughts, opinions, and passions of writers. The art of writing is slowly becoming less and less common and in my personal opinion, that is quite dangerous.

Writing is one of the most powerful and influential tools in all of history. Declaration of independence/war, newspapers articles, letters of love, political writings, etc., have shaped country’s from the beginning until now.

What about the birth of the United States of America that came from the Declaration of Independence that was signed on July 4, 1776, and announced that the thirteen American Colonies that brought war between the Kingdom of Great Britain.

The pamphlet Common Sense by Thomas Paine that supported the Americans in their fight for the independence from the British and encourage the people in the American Colonies to resist the leader from Great Britain and push for an egalitarian government. What about the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American slave by Frederick Douglass himself that gave insight to slaves across America and one of the most influential texts during the abolitionist movement in the United States.

The Lord of the Rings and The Collection of Children’s fairy tales and household tales published in 1812 by the Grimm’s brothers that created the basis and foundation text for all fantasy readers and authors. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank that became a symbol and reminder of the impact of persecution.

The Jungle by Upton Sinclair that depicted the countless health violation and stories of the unfair treatment and pay for migrant workers. The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin that still aids modern scientists as they build a better understanding of all Earth’s species.

The Bible that is the most translated and the most frequently purchase book in the world and serves as the foundation for Christianity. William Shakespeare, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language the world’s pre-eminent dramatist, that was the biggest impact of the world of theater and there is so so much more.

Lastly, what about the community of the Odyssey writers! Even though some may pass us off as being young, what we say matters, our voice, our hands gliding with a pencil as we write on paper, our fingers pressing on the keyboard, it all matters. What we type and put on display on the Odyssey can change the world.

Don’t ever let the melody of thoughts in your head stay locked up for your own enjoyment. Like a mother’s milk is essential to a newborn baby, writing is essential to human nature. All our knowledge is built and is expanded through the writing of generations before us. I beg of you, do not let the art of writing thin as the timeline goes on.

I beg you.

The vein connecting the receptors in our brain to the nerves at the end of our fingertips is the most important part of your body. I beg you don’t let the ink die in the future. If the future generation see this post, I BEG YOU, keep the art of writing and books and art and plays in our history, don’t let it go. I beg you. Clutch the arts by its hinges like you are hanging off a cliff in despair. I beg you. Don't ever let the pen run out of ink. I beg you.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
