Alvin Svitzer Blog Author

As a writer, I don’t want to be another voice. I don’t necessarily care to be famous either. I don’t even want people to remember my words. If they can remember how my message made them feel, I have done a service to my calling. I used to be afraid of writing—running away from the voice within that was eager to be transcribed. That’s how I knew I had to become a writer. Being terrified of something is usually a sign that I have to show up and conquer it.

I hope to use this blog as a platform to help others find the inspiration it takes to write fiction and to continue to write prolifically. I’ll be recording all the writing tips/tricks, character concepts, plot ideas, and my own short stories colliding in my head. Mostly for self-counseling jump-starting other people’s creativity out of writer’s block. So take what you see on the blog and run with it.
