About the Dyslexic Writer

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Did Einstein say it? Maybe, maybe not. It doesn't matter. But what does matter is the message. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and you need to recognise yours or spend your whole life fighting against who you are. For years, I thought that part of being a good writer was being able spell well and hand in perfect documents first time every time.

It's not. And one day I realised that writing is about communicating your ideas, doing it well and provoking reaction and emotions in the people who read what I wrote. Spelling matters of course, and before anything gets printed it needs to be checked, checked and checked again to ensure it's perfect. But that should stop anyone from being free to create and write fantastic stories.
