One Word

Think for a moment about the writing you've done. About how it has defined you, helped you find voice, escape to other worlds, relate lessons, share emotions.

And now think about the writing ahead. What do you want it to mean? What will come from it?

Describe in one word* what you want your writing to be.


*One word? Could be difficult. We're wordy creatures, after all.
