Her purpose: Elevate the common story one word at a time.
Her style: Learning to create an open dialogue between heart and mind.
My writing is the result of thinking, and my thoughts are the upshot of experience. I try never to forget the importance of that particular sequence. No matter the genre or style in question, writers—the real ones—share one thing in common: they’re curious. Not by trade. By nature and have to dig it all.
A writer loves the sound of her inner-voice. She turns insights into letters, then words, and finally powerful sentences that enrich and transform readers. A true writer has the drive to place herself in the mind of others—simply by expressing the truth, however small or personal. Such writers may rarely consider the future, but theirs is the work that’s truly immortal.
