Ratio 1:1 ( well, something like that… )

Greetings blogosphere! It’s been a while since my last post, but I’m back and looking forward to new things.

Today’s post is dedicated to all writers out there: authors(published or not), fiction, non-fiction, bloggers … pretty much anyone who takes the time to write something out and share it with the world.

I ascribe to the theory that the general reader-writer ratio is 1:1. Disclaimer one : yes, it is my own theory. Disclaimer two : and yes, I am aware of the published works that have sold over a million copies, in twenty different languages and best sellers in 3 continents. (It’s a funny kind of maths)

You know that awesome feeling you get when you read something and it contributes directly toward something in your life? Well, that’s exactly what I’m talking about. A writer takes the risk of sharing their work, leaving it open to criticism, praise and analysis. They have no idea who their particular audience will be, as their works are released to the public and dispensed as indiscriminately as the air we breathe.(well, in most cases)

To the writers, it is that one (and more often than not more than one) reader who makes your work worthwhile. I know the process of transforming a blank screen or page into a literary success is quite taxing, but always have that reader in mind.

My deepest gratitude to all writers whose works I have read and have made me a better person or were good for a laugh. And the utmost respect to all writers worldwide.
