Authors should write about what they care about … ALWAYS
My blog today is short, simple, chewy. It’s this:
YOU should all be so lucky to do what YOU love to do.
I loved the tribute to Stephen Sondheim’s life and work at the Kennedy Center Honors almost 20 years ago. With his recent passing, and this being THIS time of the year, I thought it would be ideal to share the segment honoring him at the event in 1993.
Grab your favorite beverage … hot, cold, whatever … and settle in. Marvel at the music, the words, the creativity, the man. It will be 20 minutes you won’t regret.
My billion-dollar takeaway:
Write about the things you care about …
Use your words … That’s what matters.
