Wordsmithery

Creative prose is my drug of choice. The highs I get from writing a great piece can last for days. On the flip side, some pieces have a half life that haunt me. Some I toss into oblivion, after wringing them out and strangling them a bit. Most days I play with words and let them dance around my brain.

Good writing is fresh, soothing, moving, powerful, and alive.

This is a page is all about my love for the written word.  I love the satisfaction of expression. If you’re a writer or word fan too, I’d love to hear from you.

Quotes for the writer:

“Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader. Not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.” ~ E. L. Doctorow

“One must be drenched in words, literally soaked in them, to have the right ones form themselves into the proper patterns at the right moment.” ~ Hart Crane

“Write from the soul, not from some notion what you think the marketplace wants. The market is fickle; the soul is eternal.” ~ Jeffrey A. Carver

“No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader.” ~ Robert Frost

“All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind.” ~ Kahlil Gibran

“Keep in mind that the person to write for is yourself. Tell the story that you most desperately want to read.” ~ Susan Isaacs
