Wednesday’s Wisdom – Claim your authority in words wisely.
Our job as writers is to make more sense of the world, to paraphrase Anne Lamott and E.B. White and a million other writers.
This is true even when you’re writing about your own life and your own experiences from your own or a borrowed point of view. When writing, you’re exposing something real, true and most likely universal.
To earn the trust of your reader, take each sentence and every word – belong: Ask yourself, “Is this sentence indulgent? Does it help the reader? Does it explain and elevate the truth in a way that makes your point easily digested and understood?
If you’re not sure, ask someone whose opinion you trust.
