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

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)
