My Writing Mantra

Listen with your heart, for words that are true and real should be felt, not just heard.

Write with your ears, because everyone has an inner voice that interprets the written word and the truth of that voice matters.

Feel with your eyes, because you want to see and envision the impact of your work on your audience – it’s there, just watch.
