...because writing poorly gets you nowherewww.WriteWellU.com
Words are crucial to my well-being and awareness. I see the world in words. I don't see it in pictures or images, just words. So, if your name is Jack, when I think of you, I think J-A-C-K. I don't imagine your face or hear the dulcet tones of your voice in my head. Just words.
That need, want, desire, essence fuels all who I am. I once thought I'd be a lawyer, and use words to defend others. Once I realized that wasn't the life for me, I headed toward teaching English. What better way to be around words in the world? Well, teaching in a junior high where kids were more concerned with pregnancy, gangs, and just surviving didn't do it for me either.
I went on to start a virtual assistance business, and I worked with some amazing people. When you work virtually, you get to use and depend on words quite a bit!
After a while, though, writing kept calling to me. I left my successful VA practice and started another company to help people become stronger writers. Along the way, I practiced what I preached and worked on my own writing.
Today, I'm doing what I love: writing and connecting with others to help them write well and create a life around words.
May we all write well.
