White people can’t dance. White people can’t jump.

Are these bits of cultural wisdom true or false? Saying that white people can’t jump or dance is about culture and race. A comeuppance statement voiced among people of color. Watch this video – whaddaya think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=129kuDCQtHs

Did you see a white person dance? Did a white chick jump onto the stage?

Language is a dance, don’t you think? Words are its movements, and grammar is its rhythm. Beats and flow work for me – rather than rules and strict adherence to regulations beyond the fact that a sentence = S+V.

Dance is language, too. Dance is the most articulate form of body language. Dance involves the entire body. It’s more than a snap of the fingers or flipping people off with one. It’s enthusiasm personified.

Speaking of personified… Watch this dance, its message and movements https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA2G-y7ySnI

I like to write as much as I like to dance. Further, I like to sing as much as I like to converse. Solo or duo or in a choir or gang. Freedom of expression is JOY!

I write within a loosely held online writer group, posting once monthly to the Insecure Writers Support Group. Because no one is watching you write, it’s helpful to be among kindred spirits, even if the presence is only virtual.
March 6th question: Have you “played” with AI to write those nasty synopses, or do you refuse to go that route? How do you feel about AI’s impact on creative writing?
Writer peeps, I gotta admit that I use two AI tools: Grammerly and ProWritingAid. Grammerly gives me high praise for my bodacious vocabulary and creative use of language. ProWritingAid shapes my words, sentences, and paragraphs, smoothing the rough edges so that I more closely follow the rules. (don’t judge me, I’m insecure, too)

White people can.
