I'm at one of the most productive times in my writing history (he says, knowing full well this will probably jinx him). It feels really good to be moving forward. It's crazy that something like a word has the power to change absolutely everything, isn't it? Language is essentially a man-made tool used to give us different solutions to problems besides killing each other.

And now a word has the power to build something as much as it does to dismantle it.

An online review can devastate a movie's opening weekend. A kind word from a friend can turn a dark day sunny. It's all there in these little characters that we've assigned meaning to.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I think the right word can take the place of a million pictures.
