How to Make Your Writing Caper Worth the Risk

An Intriguing Caper

Today, I am on a mission, an intriguing caper that many writers go on, often without realizing it. The caper of cautiously achieving my purpose by easing into your reality.

Milking the Cow

I also know that it’s futile to try to fool you. For most readers are skeptical about what a writer says. Because they know that words are easier to put on the screen than the effort needed to milk a cow.

The Risk of Writing

Not for my sake. Not for the sake of how many views and followers I will get. But for your sake. For the number of views and followers … and subscribers … that could possibly become yours.

The Winds of Discontent

Or a misplaced bunch of words. And no matter who you are, where you are, or what you do, you can’t control a tornado. But you can often control the direction and the strength of the winds of discontent that come your way.

Caught in the Downdraft?

So how are you supposed to learn to write in the present publishing scenario where most of what is written ends up as unread fodder?

The Most Important Caper of Your Career

For the most important caper of your writing career is your choosing to create a positive emotional response in your reader.

Storms of Doubt

Yet, even in those few seconds before someone says. “Hey! I just read your post and loved it!” your self-doubt still threatens to stir up a storm of its own.

Driving Your Reader’s Desires

But, since you’re also striving to create an exciting, adventurous caper for your own readers to experience, you realize your success depends entirely on your developing the skills to create an appealing, pleasant emotional reaction. In other words, your words must drive your reader’s desires.

Writng Up a Storm Cloud

But, I’m not waiting for that to happen. I’m too busy working … and writing. Writing up a storm cloud or two.
