It is time once again to focus on words! During the first week in March, we invite you to consider the importance of carefully crafted language. Words Matter Week is a time to focus on banishing slop and drivel from written and spoken communication. If you choose to blog about the holiday, please leave a comment below with a link to your post so others can read it.
The quote for Words Matter Week 2015 is simple:
If you wouldn’t write it and sign it, don’t say it.
The speaker is Earl Wilson (1907-1987), an author, actor, and syndicated columnist.
