I am a glutton for punishment. I’ve signed up with NaBloPoMo and ‘promised’ to blog daily throughout the month of November. So this is #1 of 30. I usually blog a few times a month so this will be a bit of a challenge.
Today’s question was “what is your favourite part about writing?” Now there’s a tough one. I love words. I love the sound and feel of them, the sensory thrill as they tumble off the tongue or flow from a fountain pen. Even typed on a keyboard, words thrill me.
Because. Because they create images – beautiful, stunning, stirring verbal images that can, if well crafted, move others – to action, to sadness, to joy, to wherever the writer wants to point.
Yesterday’s blog about my wee hero, Nathan, and his family moved his mother to tears – hopefully of joy – so I have done my job!
