Attention to Language

How do you pay attention to language as a presence in your life? Do you re-arrange menus or redesign road signs? Do overhead conversations stick in your thoughts for later use?

Will scenes around signage provide ideas for story?  When you read do you feel the verbal music of words and phrases?  Do words evoke colors or scents?

Take notes on your daily language.  Words surround you from texting to email to notes left around the house.

How do words reveal aspects of your life  in ways that differ from a sport or video game? Do you speak or write in more than one language?

Connect with your particular writing strengths. What do you do well? What hinders your progress?

What can you overcome with writing?
