A blog about writing and all things story…
|Me, Newport OR, a quiet writing place|
“Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them,” the conservative Tea Party favorite and past Alaska governor wrote.
Why does this matter in this blog; when you’re creating characters, good or bad, just look at the evening news and read between the lines. What are their intentions; to deflect, denounce, defend or to soothe, empathize and show that above all the rhetoric they care?
How do you use your words; spoken and written? Would this be a better world if we all (Republicans, Democrats and all) just toned it down a bit and used words of peace and acceptance instead of anger, hatred and division? I think it would. So think about what you’re writing or speaking and how your voice impacts the world. What kind of world do we want? How do we get there? I think it starts with us, the writers, the media, the moms and dads.
Pardon my rant. My word for today; peace.
