This weekend I’ll be hanging with (more!) writer pals at the SoCalRWA Conference, but I wanted to leave you with a little something to inspire you while I’m away.
My mom used to always tell us, ‘It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.’ It took until my 20’s before I fully understood what she meant. Words have power. They can unite, belittle, define, motivate, or destroy, all depending upon the words you choose to string together.
This video always makes me cry. Yes, because of the message, but because it reminds me that as a writer, I have an obligation to choose my words well. To illuminate what is not often visible between those words.
Have a fabulous weekend my darlings! Are you doing anything amazing?
