A couple of years ago I wrote a poem in response to an act of petty censorship within the biz. It wasn't a great poem, more of a rant that rhymed, but it did produce a line that has been my personal writing manifesto ever since:
I created the above image by adding some text to an image generated by The Typo Generator, which does not misspell words but creates art out of them (and a tip if you want to try it -- I've found it works best when you enter the text vertically versus horizontally.) You can choose to keep any text style, color or background it produces while changing one or two of the others.
Here are a couple examples of the same text with different backgrounds and text colors:
So if you had to create a personal writing (or working) manifesto, motto or mission statement, what would it be? Let us know in comments.
