Fun Fridays – May 13, 2022

Today’s video is a clever way to illustrate a charitable need. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra plays Vivaldi’s “Spring” but with one-third of the notes missing, thereby showing that 1/3 of all Cancer Research UK’s funding came from gifts. Very clever.

It also illustrates something else. When your manuscript seems to be missing something, this video is what the words “sound” like. If you can fill in the missing bits, you’ll have a masterpiece.

    Clever way to deliver a good message. And a wonderful metaphor for writing. Inspiration to make the words sing.

    Beautiful and creative! Brought tears to my eyes as the rest of the musicians joined in. Such a great way to show and not tell and to move your audience.
