Change is near... I'll be there, will you be there to join me?

WRITTENSMITH101 IS BACK!!!!

"Today, we will paint a positive picture that will have a lasting effect on our futures', tomorrow."

Welcome to Writtensmith101! For those of you who are unfamiliar with the previous website Writtensmith101.info, please allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Nina St'cyr and I am a freelance writer and personal manager. I write a variety of genres and  I enjoy listening to great music. Therefore, I have taken the liberty to combine, both, music and writing in an effort to create something truly amazing.  In the past, I have written: poetry, songs, screenplays, dramatic plays, eulogies, comedies, and etc. I've won several online and offline writing contests. In 2005, I was nominated as a finalist at poetry.com.  I have also received several prizes and awards, both, inside and outside of educational institutions.

 

WE THE PEOPLE:

We must not stand by ideally and accept situations in which we feel we have no control over. The truth is that we have control over ourselves. We must never forget that " we the people" are mothers and fathers raising future men and women. How can we preach and not practice? "We the people," are not perfect, however, our imperfections are costing us our children's lives. Are " We the people" blind? Can we not see that the burden falls on our shoulders, we are the ones that our children come to for guidance? If we continue to push our children away they will no longer need our guidance. Instead, the streets will become their mothers and fathers.

THE PLAN

Writtensmith101 goes national in 2016.

I have come to realize that music plays a significant role in today's society. I, myself, have a certain respect for music, especially meaningful music. When I say meaningful music, I am referring to the content of the lyrics. Although, many people may not understand the importance of the lyrics. However, as a songwriter, I do. I have a great deal of respect for meaningful music and several years of songwriting experience. I have come to realize that music is merely an equal combination of rhythm and lyrics. Based on my experience, I have learned that a song should possess a generous amount of rhythm, just enough to touch your soul. Yet it must also possess an equal amount of lyrical power, just the right amount to stimulate your mind. Unfortunately, very few artists' have reached this level of expertise.  As a result, our society has been forced to listen to anything that sounds good. However, there are a great number of artists' who have reached this level of expertise. I am not here to bad mouth the music industry. As I said before, my objective is to put the most meaningful topics in the spotlight. This site will be used as a platform for all of the subjects that we have chosen to sweep underneath the rug. I would like to shine some light on these topics because they have been sitting in the shadows for far too long.

Kind regards
