The optional question for May 1: What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?
As a young reader or student, I never had that epiphany about language and power (as an adult, certainly, many times). However, had I been able to break it down as a child and recognize the power of words intellectually, it would have been when I discovered the school library. We got to visit twice per week and check out books. FOR FREE! And that impacted the rest of my life.
The gift of reading has been a true miracle!
How has the power of words and language impacted your life?
Speaking of miracles...
My first self-published release in 5 years will be out this month:
