I pledge allegiance to my first thoughts, no matter how bizarre, frightening, or unusual they seem. I exercise my right to spell badly, use poor grammar, and ramble on if I feel so inclined. I reserve the right to pass. I will have fun and not think too much. I will be true to myself. I will listen well and deeply and compliment rather than criticize. I pledge to hold sacred any information or insight into another writer’s mind, heart, and experience. I will enjoy the treats with abandon as well as the writing. When I go home, I pledge to keep writing.
