I really love words. Like, I really love words.
Words and their permutations and possibilities are why I love languages so much, why I love writing so much.
On its own, a word isn't much, but the right one can still have an effect.
Each of these conjures connotations, images, ideas and impressions and feelings. But a word is like a wolf; it's stronger in a pack. Put them together and you can weave individual threads of meaning into a huge tapestry of undertones and subtleties that could never be accurately represented by the sum of its parts.
And a word itself is much like magic, is it not? All I need do is add a few scratches on a piece of dead tree and "surge" becomes "surgeon," something with a completely different meaning not related to the first.
Well-chosen words placed in well-structured phrases building well-ordered thoughts into one strong idea can lead to a twisting, guiding thread of a story that makes you laugh, cry, cringe, rail and rage and leaves you feeling disappointed, confused and enlightened all at once.
In the brilliant words of Mark Twain, "The difference between the right word and the wrong one is the difference between the lightning and a lightningbug."
Words are powerful tools. This is why I want to be a writer, to smith new worlds and new perspectives from them. A sword may cut flesh and rend steel, but a with a few quiet strokes a pen can crumble empires and rebuild them anew.
Be reverent of words. Knowing how to use them is a far deadlier skill than any roguecraft can bestow.
So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. —Dead Poets Society
I love that quote so much.
That movie is my favorite movie of all time. I remember watching it for the first time my freshman year of high school in an English class. I just loved it so much. I need to go watch it again soon.
