A Word-Smith I Am NOT
It's an interesting thing how the mind works. Some people think in images, some in language, others, like mine, think in tunes. I really appreciate people who are wordsmiths, who know just how to craft a sentence for greatest impact. "I have a dream..." or "The only thing we have to fear is..." and then "Ah'll be baack." or "You gotta have the eye of the tiger!" Uh, well, maybe not all lines are completely classic. However, I realize that having a blog means that I'll actually need to work on how I craft words in order to keep the masses coming back for more. One problem is that (my wife can back me up on this) I SUCK AT TELLING STORIES! I either leave out details, get the wrong details, give too many details or get the order wrong. So any recommendations on storytelling recources would be a plus if you have them. With that I'll leave you with the profound thought, "Wherever you're at, there you are." I saw a movie with that, but I forget the detail of the name of it. DOH!!!
