“Don’t go away from here without telling your story.” - DeWayne Foote
Today's featured author is spoken word artist and plumber, DeWayne Foote. DeWayne and I talk about his upbringing that taught him to ask boldly as well as what helped him become a spoken word artist.
When you transform into a writer, it opens yourself up for other avenues.
“The more I wrote, the better I felt.”
Some parts of your character are ticked away until the right catalyst appears.
Everyone needs a dose of reality. The dose is sometimes painful but necessary.
Understand your audience and your cadence as a spoken word artist.
