How about you? Do you have mixed days?
As I was wondering what to write about today, the words to a song came to me. Many of you probably haven't heard of it because the song was copyrighted in 1952, before you were born. The title is I BELIEVE, words and music by Ervin Drake, Irvin Graham, Jimmy Shirl and Al Stillman. Yeah, I know. Who are they?
Anyway, the opening lines are "I believe for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows." And the song goes on with other lovely thoughts. So I got to thinking. Yes, that's scary, I know. But why not apply this idea to my writing?
So I can say: "I believe for every word I write, a story grows. I believe that in the darkest times, a light will glow. I believe that when I lose the way, a little voice will save the day. When I type the last line of the story, then I know why I believe.
Do you believe?
