Are you an engine or an anchor? by Ms. Donna L. Quesinberry, National Writing Examiner . . .
When considering wordsmiths – both an engine and an anchor sound equally engaging. You may desire to drive your reader to greater heights of understanding but you also might desire readers remain synced in and focused on content. Is one better than the other? If we were talking relationships, such as those Sunil Bali discusses in his titles:
- The Book of Awesome Humour: Quite Simply, One of the Funniest Books Ever1 Apr 2012 | Kindle eBook by Sunil Bali
- The Art of Awesome Living: An Inspirational Guide On How To Achieve More Success, More Easily, With Less Stress1 Apr 2012 | Kindle eBook by Sunil Bali
- Mind, Set & Match: How To Do The Work That You Were Born To Do1 Apr 2012 | Kindle eBook by Sunil Bali
then the engine is our best friend and we’d favor the engine over the anchor:
There comes a time when you have to decide whether the other person in the relationship is an engine that drives you forward, or is an anchor that weighs you down. A ship is designed to take you places, so if your friendship, partnership, or relationship isn’t taking you anywhere, then its time to abandon ship!
