“I’m so sick of words! I get words all day through; First from him, now from you! Is that all you blighters can do?” sings Eliza Doolittle from the musical, “My Fair Lady”.
In the song “Show Me” Eliza was sick of studying, and had packed her bags. “Never do I ever want to hear another word. There isn’t one I haven’t heard.” Have you ever felt that way?
George Bernard Shaw’s, Eliza Doolittle is determined to rise above her meager existence by working hard to improve her English. Improving oneself can be disheartening and tiring, especially when we are not certain we are improving. Eliza was exasperated and says, “…one more word and I’ll scream!”
Romantic in spots, comical in others, and surprisingly philosophical, Eliza Doolittle rises from lowly flower girl to the heights of sophistication in much the same way authors hope their novels will climb from the bottom of Amazon’s charts into the ranks and starlight of popularity.
Word Sowers Christian Writers Conference held in Omaha, Nebraska, helped to encourage, equip, and educate authors so they could give back to their reading population the best novels, devotionals, and non-fiction books possible.
