 I will write factual, complete, and detailed accounts of the human experience, or my life events.  I will do so without permission, and doing so for nothing more than to chase my passion, and regardless of the opinion of others.  Above all else, no time and no words shall I waste.

    People at times tend to write to impress others. It is not the best. It should be the truth no matter the criticism you get.

    You can never achieve much if you are afraid of other people’s opinions. Sheer determination and focus will definitely help you overlook that.

    This is really a great advice to live by. However, with the great power of words, we still must exercise caution when sorely needed. The written word is so powerful it could cause absolute chaos waiting to be unleashed by a madman’s pen.

    Writing is power. It gives us the best option of telling our story just the way we should. It’s the best way out.

    This is how writing will make you so brave. It always gives you courage to speak from your heart.

    As a writer, you’re being expressive whenever you write. You don’t waste words.

    Thanks for sharing this. I think it is nice to write as factual as you can. If only I can write things exactly how it happened.

    It really depends though. If you are just narrating then sure. However if you are sharing an opinion on something, on purpose or not you will leave a piece of yourself in your writing. I agree with him but on a situational basis.
