The love of words is what brought me to this writing gig; to this place where I have over 15 novels I’ve written and at least two hundred short stories. Words, the idea that a person can take a handful of words and make something breathtaking on what was a once blank piece of paper; that a handful of words can stop you in your tracks and make you think; well, as a writer, a word smith, this is the closest I’m ever going to get to sculpture, painting, or pure art.
I was thinking about words today, about words we quote. I’m a collector of other people’s words. I use quotes for inspiration, hang them all through my house. We all do this. How many emails do I receive in a day that have a signature that is a quote. Here are some clever words that are not my own but give inspiration.
