This month's question: What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?
My answer: WOW! What a terrific question! I learned early in life that language had power, because growing up I was a witness to and victim of the verbal abuse that took place in our house. Later on in my life, as a freshman in college, I watched a hypnotism show where the hypnotist told everyone still under his influence how to vote in the upcoming election. (Yikes - read the whole story here - and this was the inspiration for my novel, UNLOCKED.)
How about you?
