Short and Chewy … Always WRITE about what YOU care about

     Authors should write about what they care about … ALWAYS


It’s always good to have something to read that is short, simple, and chewy. One of my thoughts for this is:

YOU should all be so lucky to do what YOU love to do.

I loved the tribute to Stephen Sondheim’s life and work at the Kennedy Center Honors 20 years ago. He passed in 2021 leaving with all of us a legacy of his words and songs. I thought it would be ideal to share the segment honoring him at the event in 1993.Grab your favorite beverage … hot, cold, whatever … and settle in. Marvel at the music, the words, the creativity, the man. It will be 20 minutes you won’t regret.

My billion-dollar takeaway:

Write about the things you care about …

Use your words … That’s what matters.

Writing for you …
