Good writing can change the world.
And I don’t make that statement lightly… when it comes down to it, just about everything you do can change the world. Smack a mosquito that lands on your arm, and you’ve changed the world by removing a life, however small. Hula hoop down Main Street dressed in neon green, and you’ve most certainly given other people something to chat about for a few moments. Point is, everything you do changes the world.
But good writing changes it in a different way. It can be a user manual written in a way that engages an audience and makes it easy to troubleshoot a buggy software system, allowing healthcare claims to pay so that a small-town doctor can spend more time with his sick patients and less time on the phone with the billing company. Maybe it’s a well-crafted proposal that secures grant funding, allowing a start-up to work on a better solution to childhood hunger. Perhaps it’s a novel that makes the underdog shine so brightly, millions of teens across America think that maybe, just maybe, they’re perfect just the way they are.
This is good writing. It can do anything. And I’ve dedicated my life to it.
Namaste, and welcome to my site.
