Here at YeMash we are devoted to words. This means that we understand and appreciate the art and magic of the written word. My heart raced the first time I read a Sister Souljah novel, and my heart ached the first time I read Tupac’s “A Rose that Grew From Concrete”. My life was changed forever by these two literary geniuses and it continues to change with every adjective and every noun that's typed on a piece of paper and makes its way to my heart.
I like to consider myself a fellow writer that could one day change someone else's life, however, my own life seems to always get in the way of the journey. You can get so busy working, dating, or in my case raising a child, that you forget to write it down.
So, in an effort to get all of our Wordies (myself included) back on track, we are introducing #20DaysWithWords. There will be a blog post from yours truly everyday for 20 days starting August 1st. As you know it ain't no fun if your friends can't have none so I'm inviting all of you guys to join in! Email me your take on each day’s challenge! You'll be featured on the blog, and if it's really good and juicy, you may also receive a shoutout on Away With Words The Podcast!
Below is a list of the topics for the 20 day challenge. Pick any date and topic you'd like to write about and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also be sure to include which topic you’re submitting in the subject box. I look forward to reading!
