“Swoopers write a story quickly, higgledy-piggledy, crinkum-crankum, any which way. Then they go over it again painstakingly, fixing everything that is just plain awful or doesn’t work. Bashers go one sentence at a time, getting it exactly right before they go on to the next one. When they’re done they’re done. ”
Words are powerful. They pierce through to add value to someone’s life and in return. you, the writer, become powerful. I just want you to remember that you are powerful with words you deliver and to remember that there is someone waiting at the receiving end to be helped through the words you write. So do not keep that one person waiting for too long. Keep writing.💙
I think there are two types of writers, the architects and the gardeners.
The architects plan everything ahead of time, like an architect building a house. They know how many rooms are going to be in the house, what kind of roof they’re going to have, where the wires are going to run, what kind of plumbing there’s going to be. They have the whole thing designed and blueprinted out before they even nail the first board up.
The gardeners dig a hole, drop in a seed and water it. They kind of know what seed it is, they know if planted a fantasy seed or mystery seed or whatever. But as the plant comes up and they water it, they don’t know how many branches it’s going to have, they find out as it grows. And I’m much more a gardener than an architect.

Hello George! I’m much more a gardener than an architect too. I’m a gardener certainly. I put the seed in the ground and water it. When the plant shoots out, I do not know how many branches it’s going to take.
