If you are new to my virtual world, welcome & thank you
(and gosh aren’t you cute!)
Here is a 475-word explanation of who I am, what I do, and why I do it.
Because sometimes I forget to remind … myself. And you.
I am a writer, teacher, human, creator of wee-books & digital tools and soon-to-be-published author*.
At the core of my being is the belief that if you can’t describe something in words — words that other people can understand & rally behind — then it doesn’t exist.**
And if it doesn’t exist, then it can’t touch anyone else. It can’t solve any problems, heal any hearts, or make the planet a better place. (And that’s an awful waste.)
I want to teach you how to find the right words to translate your ideas into reality — which is the best kind of magic.
I want to show you how to become a clear & noble communicator — persuasive, but not pushy. Inspiring, but not airy. Honest, but not cruel.
I want to help you become the kind of person that Mr. Rogers would be proud to call his neighbor, that Oscar Wilde would invite to a soirée, and that RuPaul would deem “fabulous.”
Most of all: I want to help you remember who you are, reveal who you’re becoming, and be understood.
If you are new ’round here, here are 15 places you might want to explore, first …
… it’s a collection of helpful how-to’s that will (a) make your life a lot easier (b) make your words a lot shinier and (c) remind you to leave the world in better condition that you found it.
Enjoy to the max!
*My first print book, 50 Ways To Say You’re Awesome, will be released by Sourcebooks in September 2013. And! I have a second book project coming out in the fall — a 3-year journal for couples called Our Q&A A Day, from Random House | Crown.
**Or at least, it doesn’t exist anywhere other than the inside of your mind.
