It All Begins with a Writer…

Avatar, the new 3-D, sci-fi/fantasy movie premiered this past weekend loaded with lots of fantastic animation and special effects, but at the heart of it is a love story.  The production is the brain child of John Cameron who worked as a high school janitor and at precision tool and die manufacturing company.  He said he was a blue collar worker.  Then he went to see Star Wars, the movie, and was blown away because what he saw on the screen was similar to the stories he could envision himself.  He knew he wanted to write themand make them into movies.  And he did!  Big time including the hit movie, Titanic. 

There would be no hit movie without that small kernel of an idea of a love story that developed into a full story.  Stories and thoughts spring from writers’ brains.  A writer is the one who gets the ball rolling on so many levels.  Advertisements, marketing, legal documents, bills in Congress (okay I won’t go there), books,  poems, instructions for setting up computer programs or operating the Wii game system.  All the technical writing and news stories have to be put down on paper.  And we do that.  Our writing touches every part of life.

At this time of the year, I think what would have happened if the writers of the Bible didn’t take time to write the stories, the lessons, the history.  The story of the love, peace, and joy brought by Baby Jesus would not reach so many people in the world.  Christmas is a worldwide event celebrated by many cultures.  These writers have played their part in touching the people of the world.

Give yourselves a gift this season, the gift of time to write.  Do it for yourself.  You can contribute to the literature in this world.  You can make a difference.

I wish you all the blessings of this holiday season.  Merry Christmas to All!!
