Words


“I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them.”

– Anne Rice

If Only It Were This Easy…….


Pick up the pen

Pull off the cap

Smooth the page

Dig in your mind

Pull out the idea that glows

Toss it around in front of your eyes

Turn it inside out

Stand it on its head

Draw the sparkle out of the thought

Put it into your pen

And let it do the rest

Feast on Words


“If you stuff yourself full of poems, essays, plays, stories, novels, films, comic strips, magazines, music, you automatically explode every morning like Old Faithful. I have never had a dry spell in my life, mainly because I feed myself well, to the point of bursting. I wake early and hear my morning voices leaping around in my head like jumping beans. I get out of bed quickly, to trap them before they escape.”
-Ray Bradbury

What a Word-Lover Needs…


1. A thick dictionary (tiny print and plenty of dust is preferable)

2. A baby name book for character names

3. A lucky pen for especially good pieces (super lucky if it has colored ink)

4. A library card

5. A flashlight for reading under the covers all night (plus some extra batteries)

6. Plenty of book knowledge

7. A big stack of notebooks to scribble in (composition are the best)

8. A cozy bed to read in

9. A blog for sharing

10. A journal for keeping (must be secret)
