–What do you read, my lord?
?Words, words, words
Indeed, words, words, words, that combination of symbols representing the sounds we utter to identify what we see, what we smell, what we taste, what we hear and what we feel, as well as what we ponder in philosophy and theology. Words are tools, and like all tools they can be used to create or destroy. We are controlled by words that often we fail to control.
Here on this page I will discuss words using words. Novels, non-fiction, stories, poems, essays, articles–all are fodder for discourse. When I lean how to do it, I will invite you, my guests, to add to this discussion and submit reviews of your own.
As a writer I am sensitive to cruel words regarding one’s work, so there will be none of that here. The operative word is “discuss” and if negative words need to be written, please use your ability to sort words to find the positive within the critique. No work of art is bad because art is personal reflection of what the artist experiences. The work may not be to our taste, but that does not make it bad; there is always a positive word to be written.
Let me begin with my own work.
