At Outrabanda we write. A lot. Because of our job as advertising copywriters, when we create on-line contents, while translating, if we are developing strategies or campaigns, as we prepare our lectures…
And we love it.
It is true, a blank page is sometimes (or rather often) scary. But we know that after a mental block, and giving it a little time, a walk, a night or a conversation, words may simply pour out.
And that those words are always stories – brief, long, in chapters, divided into sections, intricate, simple, kind, abrupt, powerful… yes, powerful and important: for whoever reads them, for whoever asks for them, for whoever reads them, for whoever listens to them. That is the reason why we care about each and every one of our words and about all our stories. And we carefully listen and read all the words that reach our eyes and ears.
The deserve it. #StoriesMatter
