Writers use words to express themselves, to tell a story, or to communicate in ways that most people never really consider communication.
We think in word terms and what they mean, how to understand them, and how to use them constantly. It’s a huge part of our day.
Writers often find themselves confused when others misuse words, or use them inappropriately, or worse, limit their vocabulary to words that have no real value or meaning other than shock factor.
Dropping an F bomb in the middle or beginning of a sentence where it means something is valuable, but if it’s used as punctuation for every sentence you speak, the word ceases to have meaning or value.
Writers frequently get upset with non-writers who just don’t understand basic concepts and apply meaning that isn’t there, to words not even used.
Writers are mistaken for rude, when they’re simply being literal.
Writers don’t waste energy on mundane attempts at communication. They either communicate, or move on.
Sometimes words get in the way of how we really feel, because we’d like to be screaming them full volume instead of communicating nicely, like we know we can.
Logic is overrated.
Writer license means I can rewrite my story to make it sound better.
I don’t have to be funny to be good.
