Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to write, have always loved writing, but often had an unsatisfactory relationship with the written word. From the world's second shortest ghost story (there's a story behind that itself) to getting an 'A for audacity' for a crazy yarn in my early teens. From a brief sojourn into poetry and a failed sci-fi novel to items in various UK magazines before finally settling on the internet and blogging in particular.
It's all about words.
Without words we are as nothing, we are mute and expressionless.
Without words we have no true understanding, no way to describe. Without words all we have is base emotion but are unable to truly define that.
Words enable everything, from expressing our base desires to communicating the beauty of a sunset.
"It's only words and words are all I have" - The Bee Gees
But there's no such thing as only words.
Words have power but one word, the right word at the right time, can be the most powerful of all.
