Whether it's a thank you note, love letter, or a 70K-word manuscript, writing that stands out and touches the heart, is writing that is sincere and original. This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Emma:
"If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more."
How beautiful is that? I hear that Jane Austen phrase often in my head when I don't want to talk about something. Except for me, it becomes:
If it hurt less, I could talk about it more.
After all, sometimes words are easier to write down than to utter. Though I've learned recently, that doesn't mean someone won't borrow your turn of phrase and make it into a meme. #imitationisflattery
