I got a writing assignment back from a High School English teacher with one critique: “find your voice.”
At the time, I figured all I needed was an opinion. All I had to do was enumerate my thoughts with my keyboard and my voice would shine through these alphabetical equations.
I was wrong.
In order to have a voice, you need a story to tell. To have a story to tell, you gotta’ play the game. And as my coaches would say, “pain is part of the game, ladies. If you’re scared… go play Madden.”
Milton Bradley isn’t God in this game of Life, so I fear that my Coaches sentiments are true: “If you don’t win, you ain’t shit,” ‘cause… I’m not sure how to win.
