The Greatest Page YOU ever wrote!

At least once in your life you have written something so intense, so full of inspiration, perhaps so funny or maybe just so sad... You would look at those few lines and pride will glitter in your eyes, you'd say "I wrote this... I can't believe I did :)"... Then, you would probably put those amazing words back in a drawer, locked forever, where no one would ever read... you would hope that someday, maybe after you die one of your kids, or grandchildren would know how great you were!

You have probably written this marvelous piece of work on the back of your lecture notebook ages ago in the university, maybe in your good old composition notebook at school... Perhaps, in your diary... In a published article if you were lucky enough... or in your blog!

Those few lines that you wrote and believe to be the best you ever wrote, would be the goldmine of human emotion, inspiration, intelligence, charm and wit... to name a few...

Every person would have experienced something unique to the extreme, whether it is love, grief, inspiration or anything else...

I would urge you to link your own greatest post ever written right here... I'm actually thinking of publishing a book that would include what you think is YOUR greatest post, if we get enough to publish a high quality book, and will work on marketing it... why not! publicity to everyone, and a wealth of talent for those who search for it... Better yet, I will work on a website that will host such posts/pages with links to your original post :)

Go ahead and post your link, make sure you select only one post... It's not easy choosing, I know but it is a must.... My advice is choose the piece you would like to be remembered for writing... the one you think represents the best you ever wrote... If you don't have a blog, just write it and make sure to write your name...


What do you think, let the world know of your page!?

Having a deep and strong feelings about something makes you write something great about it.

Ammar,
Yes the link is not showing, can you write it down in two seperate lines...

Ammar said...

actually its correct, it just doesnt show the whole address if you click on the comments tab on your site, if you click on the title of your post and have the post appear alone in one page along with the comments it appears again but here it is again anyway:

Ammar: Nice post!

Great idea, but I doubt people will be giving you links because you asked for a link to the best thing they've ever written and it is hard to judge your own writings, they're all yours and at some point you felt every word you typed or wrote. A better idea would be to ask people to give you links to the best posts they've ever READ for other people!

One of the great English writers, Samuel Johnson, said something very insightful on this:

"read what you have written, and when you come across a passage that you think particularly fine, strike it out."

Passion doesn't make a good writer. It just blinds bad writers to their faults.

Anon,
This is a very unusual way to look at it... A bit too harsh I guess...
