The Power of Words

What are words? It doesn't matter what language you use. Words are collections of symbols with specific meanings, purpose, and power. 

"The pen is mightier than the sword." ~ Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

Proof of this flashes before us every day. Words move people. They touch the soul, inspire the heart, and activate the mind. They even spark passions, heal wounds, or inflict pain. People cling to songs, movies, books, magazines, TV shows, blogs... All start with words.

Sometimes words seem inadequite. Sometimes they are overwhelming. But they all hold power. Power to do wonderous things for generations to come. The potential is imense and limitless. 

Use caution with your words. They can inflict pain in an instant, destroy trust that may never return, or spark a flame that you never intended to light. Words hold the power and strength put into them - waiting for the next person to listen or read and feel that power. 

I have written and published 22 books so far (since 2012) and have contributed to two charity anthologies. I've published in 2 periodicals (one in Australia and one online). I have multiple projects in the making plus this blog. I've also begun freelance writing and hope to have stories and articles published in various locations.
