If Everybody Did
If Everybody Did by Jo Ann Stover is a delightful children's book that ponders what happens if everyone did things like leave muddy footprints in the house or toys on the stairs. The results are humorously illustrated in this little treasure, carrying, of course, the bigger message that our actions affect those around us.
The content always makes me think. (My grandson and I read it recently.) The writer's mind is rarely still, right? :)
What if writers never:
Assisted a fellow scribe?
Took time to learn something new?
Pressed through writer's block, doubt, and insecurities?
Would the world be a different place?
Entirely so, I'm thinking.
What aspect of the writing life are you most grateful for? Which ones could you live without? Have you ever thought about how your actions as a writer affect others?
