As Alex Cavanaugh pointed out on Wednesday, I could have talked about lazy writing. But I was coming off a big nerd weekend where I had a lot of things on my mind. You know...Avengers: Endgame followed by "The Long Night" episode of Game of Thrones. Alex, you were 100% correct that I could have used that as an IWSG post. But, I forgot. So I'm answering the May 1st question on May 3rd.

Here it is: What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?

I think I learned that language had power when I was 13 years old and visiting Japan with my mom. I was picking up on the language, but I didn't know how to speak it very well. I realized that communicating with others is a real challenge, and that you really are at the mercy of those who can communicate and then translate things to you. So there you have it.

Have a great weekend everyone, and if you are writing, don't make it lazy.
