My girlfriend is not a writer but has the ability to take any situation, pleasurable or painful, and make it sound beautiful. The only thing is, she has a difficult time explaining to me how it’s done lol. Do you have any pointers for me? I’d really appreciate it. – Boy Speak
Dear Boy Speak,
You know how every color of the rainbow makes you feel a certain way.
Red fires you up.
Green grows wildly and free.
Purple exhumes magic and intuition.
Well, so do words.
Here’s how to look better and make some beauty out of nothing.
In school, I would complain about the laundry list of vocabulary I had to memorize and spell correctly.
The only way for me to associate myself to even one word was to relate it some how to real life.
Taking the imaginary and making it real by attaching a feeling, sound, picture or color to a word.
The definition, spelling, font choice and sound a word produces in all languages effects how we relate to the overall expression.
Do we wallow in confusion and dismiss what we truly care?
Do we cry in bewilderment and shrug off those we love?
I said the same thing but the feeling, rhythm and word choice is diverse.
Choosing your words openly means owning how they make you feel.
This is the beauty of writing and turning what is pleasurable or painful into an artform.
Your life can be adjusted in the same way and there are great thought leaders here to help figure this transformation if you’re struggling to accept your real purpose.
Personally, I work on color consciousness daily if not each hour through mindful color magic and wordsmithing.
I like to find a quote that means something to me right now and ignites an A-HA.
Then I go ahead and color each word based on how that one word makes you feel in association to a color.
Blend each sentence.
