From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?

A Resolution for 2012

           Like a bad virus this is making its way around the Internet, but I wanted to save it for reviewing on a regular basis. I know grammar is my weakness, and that my writing annoys the hell out of grammar geeks. I care, but not very much to be perfectly honest. (Yes, I know that is a cliche' and I shouldn't be remarking on it as a parenthetical statement.) I do, however, care enough to try to do better, because I agree bad writing "sucks". I will review this list maybe a million times. Promise.
