First blog post

Welcome to my blog! As a writer, wording is everything. Words have the ability to convey meaning, feeling, a message or transport the reader into another time and place. Edward George Bulwer Lytton (1803-1873), penned the proverb, “Beneath the rule of men entirely great, the pen is mightier than the sword.”  Word choice has an enormous power to uplift or destroy, enlighten or confuse, entertain or offend. A single word can evoke emotion, spark imagination, and influence action. Words count so use them to make the world a better place. Believe. Challenge. Inspire.
