Forgive me for saying this, but we’re all writers now—thanks to technology and all the social media tools available. Yes, it is true that many choose to be more of a consumer than a content creator. Whichever we chose, everything we consume mentally feeds our minds and fuels the thoughts we, in turn, express in person or online.

Words are just symbols.

So whether we are writing a paper, posting a comment, sharing an emoticon, or simply clicking the “like” button; we are writers. Our words, or any other symbolic expression, demonstrate our opinions and expertise. It is how we connect personally, professionally, and potentially with a global network of others.

Where do you get your words from? What kind of world are your words contributing to?
