Exciting Explorations

“I write to explore, not to excite.” – Stephen Quammie

After having a discussion with a friend of mine who is getting ready to publish another Ebook, I found myself stuck on this one line I said. I am always curious where one line will take me. Will I write something with ease or will it be an uphill battle?

I don’t really aim to grab anyone’s attention (yes, as a Writer I want to be read), I want to have a conversation, or a journey of sorts. I want my words to not only represent me, but to also be an extension of you. I don’t know you & you don’t know me, but on some level after scratching the surface, we aren’t all that different. I want to figure out what makes us click, while celebrating our differences.

You guys push me to be better. You inspire me with your vivid stories & gripping visuals. Looking at your world allows me to write & express things that are outside of my realm of knowledge or experience, but through connecting with you I am able to take on your joys & pains with you, in my own way.

Sometimes I’m not really writing about myself at all, I’ve just become the face of what someone is feeling because it’s easier to see & accept things from a distance. (Speaking of which, I need to get my eyes checked.)

I say all of that, to say this:

Life would be pretty boring without you. Thanks for being my muses.

Much love & respect,
Stephen Quammie (The Wandering Mind)

  1. no thank you, Stephen! honesty about your writing helps us! 🙂
    and take care of yourself, eyes included



    i agree with you. its one of the reason I am kind of afraid to write. what if its not good enough for the readers or what if they dont get what I am trying to say?
    I think I am better reader than I am better writer!
    I hope you do get to write a book! it would be great! I would be so excited so for you, and I read it without a doubt!!! 🙂


  3. Thank You and you very welcome. You have bn such a blessing to me… God Bless 🙂

    I can’t wait to read your book as well….


  4. Fantastic and kinda ‘snap’!! Fresh, honest, fun, heart strings, you reach it all! Words should be felt not read. And I feel yours! Bloody brilliant! 😀
