I LIKE TO MANIPULATE MINDS.
I know that sounds extreme, but I mean no harm.
To me, being a writer is like having a superpower. Using words alone, I can make strangers think, feel, and take action. With just a few clicks on my keyboard or scribbles in my notebook, I can anonymously do good, change behaviors, and better the minds of people I’ll never meet.
“Manipulate,” “control,” “skillfully influence,” regardless of what you call “it,” I’m a writer because I want to use my voice to make a positive impact.
And, unlike superheroes, I get to use my talents to help, without the pressure of actually having to save the world…not to say I don’t try to, one word at a time.
