Makali 's curator insight, March 26, 2013 9:06 PM

This is such a moving video, and it just goes to show that the simplest things can have an extreme impact. I feel that power doesn't necessarily rely on how many people there are involved; but how the message is written. The lady could have read the sign felt bad give him some change and walk away, but instead she changed the wording on his sign making his situation something people have a stronger impact to. To me this video showed the great power in words, and just how careful we need to be when using them; because they have enormous impacts.

3 Prewriting Strategies for Any Writing Project

3 Prewriting Strategies for Any Writing Project | Literary Productivity | Scoop.it

One step that student writers frequently overlook is the first one — prewriting. They launch into composing before taking the time to plan and organize their thoughts. This kind of impatience often turns out to be costly. Papers written without wise preparation are not only poorer in quality, but frequently more time-consuming than papers written with attention to the prewriting phase. That’s right — skipping this step can actually cost you time.

Outlining has always been my prewriting strategy of choice. Really cuts down on my "what now" time.
