As an author, journalist and an activist, anytime I write something, be it a social media update or my next novel, I write with the intent to empower, enlighten and entertain. If I can do all three simultaneously, golden!
I call it the E-Cubed Directive. These challenging times are a reminder why I do the work I do in the manner I do.
For those of you needing resources to entertain, empower or enlighten yourself and/or others the following are a few posts that may serve as a resource and feel free to share with others.
Stay strong and keep flying.
