Good Words for a Friday in the Rain (12)

 Lately I have been spending a few extra hours playing in the Rain.

I've come to learn that it doesn't take much to see which posts will make a "splash" and which will be just "drips" in this big puddle.

The key to all GOOD writing, whether it is a novel, screen play or even a blog, is originality.

So I encourage you to be original, have a whale of a good time, and...

Splash It Forward.

Now this is a "positive" way to say something that needs to be said.

Thanks for the post. As you know, I'm playing catch up. Reading this post i couldn't help but think of how little people think of themselves, when they resort to being something other than original!

Well spoken - I like this quote a lot.  It seems especially appropriate in an atmosphere like AR.

Amen to that. Just look at the HGTV show Design Star....Sparkles. Hey he didn't win, but his originality will and has made a lasting impression.
