Add Spice to Your Writing

It’s been a while since I walked across the fields of the Cow Pasture. Words have alluded me. Some days it has been like sitting at the keyboard and forgetting how to spell. Other times words run through my mind at warp speed at the turn of events in my life – not words I should repeat here. Although laced with emotions, they are lazy words, meant only for my catharsis.
We rarely get the results we want when we spew words into the universe because it feels good or is quick and easy. Like a recipe without flavor, it’s lazy and boring.
Words are the spice of our stories. Write with purpose and choose words that bring your story to life and leaves the reader with a lingering taste for more.
