OPTIONAL IWSG DAY QUESTION:
What are five objects we’d find in your writing space?
Coffee, bobble-head Groot, dog treats, pen, and notepad
i’M NOT GOOD AT Diverse writing BUT i want to learn:
I read about diversity all over the place. And I support all people of any belief system, orientation, challenge and heritage. I won’t refer to the news (although I just have) for the reasons I want to write about all types of people.
I’m a person of love. I wish everyone was.
I don’t want to hurt or offend anyone. In my clumsy way of learning, I’m afraid of offending someone or being misquoted in some hateful way.
I’m not a weapon.
That said, it’s time to put on my big-girl pants.
I’m asking for VOLUNTEERS to correct me:
- I need training to use the right words
- I need to see where I go wrong and how to fix it
- I need to be able to fail so I can succeed
- I’m already sensitive but I need to see through another’s eyes
I’m white in non-diverse community and have no idea what I’m doing but doing it anyway. Let’s put some diversity on the page and widen our minds.
Thanks for the support.
