Provoke: Excite to some feeling or action.
~ Webster’s New World Dictionary
The books that provoke the deepest response from me engage my emotions. Same with movies and music. It’s great to enjoy something for sheer entertainment. But it won’t make an iota of difference in my life unless it moves me to tears, fills me with joy, stokes my anger, or feeds my passion. Only then do I take action.
Write as though each word you choose can change someone’s world. If you don’t believe that, watch this. Then take another look at what you wrote today.
