[Voices and words are what connect us to the people in our lives. Even the most introverted person, through their limited words and connections, according to most sociologists, will influence around 10,000 people during their lifetime. We customize the inflection of our voices to cater to the person or audience we are communicating with to put is in the best position to achieve our desired end goal with them. That’s why, when we want something, we use a soft, friendly tone, with pleasantries as key words. The same is true for my writing. My words, from my tiny cell to your computer screen, connect me to you. I have several goals: to enlighten and educate people on the outside about the realities of prison life on the inside, to entertain my audience by expressing my creativity, and most importantly, to encourage more people to help in the fight for my exoneration. When I write, I use different voices. I have a creative voice, a teaching voice, a grammatical voice, a proper voice, and in this blog, my dominant tone will be my casual voice. So let’s chill and connect.]
Good morning, my virtual cellie. Welcome back to my absolutely wonderful prison life (smile). It’s good to see you again, too. Well, don’t just stand in front of my cell door out on the run (tier), come inside, my curious civilian cellie, let’s talk while sharing a pack of chocolate chip cookies and cups of coffee.
