Influence


Influence. It’s what we writers hope to have over the thoughts of others.

Maybe you write humor or slice of life pieces. Or pulp fiction.  You think “I don’t have any influence. I write fluff stuff.”

Wrong.

There is a tribute film coming out about The Three Stooges. Yep. Moe, Curly and Larry are getting a tribute for humor that still makes kids laugh decades later. On CBS’s Sunday Morning , these three Average Joes, who annoyed parents and delighted their children, were hailed as the funniest humor trio ever.

The trio made three short films per year. The scripts were written and produced. Fluff.

So, like it or not, when we put words to the page, and anyone out there reads and likes our work, we wield influence.

Just food for thought.

    • Glad you are back. One day WordPress had a message up that you had taken down your site. I was disappointed, but now I am elated because the message was false. P.S. I posted about Advanced E-Learning recently. The post links to some magnificent sites for research across a wide array of subjects. If you didn’t see it, you may want to look at it. Good tool for writing.
