“Advice? I don’t have advice. Stop aspiring and

start writing. If you’re writing, you’re a writer. Write like you’re

a goddamn death row inmate and the governor is out of the country and

there’s no chance for a pardon. Write like you’re clinging to the edge of a cliff,

white knuckles, on your last breath, and you’ve got just one last thing to say,

like you’re a bird flying over us and you can see everything, and please,

for God’s sake, tell us something that will save us from ourselves.

Take a deep breath and tell us your deepest, darkest secret,

so we can wipe our brow and know that we’re not

alone. Write like you have a message from

the king. Or don’t. Who knows, maybe

you’re one of the lucky ones

who doesn’t have to.”

– Alan W. Watts

Over the years Eyes + Words has turned into a wonderful budding family of over fifteen thousand people across all platforms. It’s surreal and humbling to know that the art of poetry and story is alive and thriving. That being said, I hope that the creation of the Eyes + Words Writers Group serves as a vehicle and launch pad to help and support writers and the aspiring ones to keep manifesting words that many out there are searching for everyday. So go on and contribute, lets elevate together. Everyone is encouraged to share their experiences with anything involving writing.
