We love that you love visiting and reading TC (yes, we see you—hi!), but we’d love it even more if you interacted with us, too. So in this exercise we challenge you to speak up. Comment on a post or article. Talk to us on Twitter or Facebook. Start a thread at the forums. Do something to give us an opportunity to get to know you better.

If you appreciate TC, speaking up is the easiest way to give back. We know it can be scary to delurk, but you can do it! Help put the community back in writing community. We can’t do it without you.

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud. Coco Chanel (1883-1971)

I write for those women who do not speak, for those who do not have a voice because they were so terrified, because we are taught to respect fear more than ourselves. We’ve been taught that silence would save us, but it won’t. Audre Lorde (1934-1992)

I think most of us fear reaching the end of our life and looking back regretting the moments we didn’t speak up. … there’s a time for silence, and there’s a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you’ll know it. I don’t think you should wait. I think you should speak now. Taylor Swift (1989- )
