Welcome to my brain — or at least a corner of it — where the ideas ebb and flow and beg to be released.
The Maths Behind Writing
Vocabulary = All the different colors in a child’s paint box. Better to have colors you don’t often use than not have the ones that you need.
Writing = Knowing the rules well enough to know how and when to break them.
Words = Serious tools that should be handled with care. They can build or destroy according to the skill and intention of the user. Or they can just sit there doing a whole lot of nothin’.
I cook with words better than I cook in the kitchen. An’ I’m a pretty good cook – or so say the others.
