Powerful Personal Writing: Is Your Site Pink for October?
This Week’s Prompt: Powerful
Every time a writer sits down in front of a keyboard or picks up a pen or pencil, he or she hopes to craft a written work powerful enough to impact its readers in some way. Ironically, we cannot foresee the many ways in which our writing affects those who connect with our words.
We work so hard to string flowery phrases together, searching the thesaurus and dictionary for unique words and expressions that will demonstrate to our readers just how accomplished we are, how powerful our command of the language.
But despite all our efforts, there are times when the written word is most powerful because of its simply stated, unambiguous truth.
As I considered this week’s prompt, I began reading the various blogs to which I subscribe. And there it was: The most powerful, thought-provoking, and moving post I have read in a long, long time. Not coincidentally, I had just transformed Colloquium in anticipation of Pink for October when I read WhyMommy’s words at Toddler Planet.
