If you are of the female persuasion and not yet familiar with She Writes, I recommend checking it out. Among many, many other resources, they host live weekly writer interviews that you can call in to. Today’s call was on the topic of women writing humor. The best take-away for me today was Mishna Wolff’s reference to a line she heard often growing up: A beautiful wit is power. (unfortunately when I tried to google any kind of original reference, it pulled up mostly typos captured in cyberspace).
A beautiful wit is power: what a wonderful thing to hear echoing around inside your head while growing into yourself.
