Darling Words

Josey tea Carli JeanWrapping up the loose ends of a WP Writing course I had opportunity to visit other bloggers. I began with a like on one of my posts by Twilight73, on to a comment thread and then back to my inbox. From there to a like from Classy, all of which marvelously wove into a tapestry of the love of words.


journals pen Kikhail PavstyukExploring words has long been one of my favorite pastimes. Sometimes while writing, especially free-style exercises, random words pop into my work. Sometimes with astounding accuracy a word from somewhere obscure; such mystifying, wonderful sounding words that I wonder how they came to me, through me, and why they moved into those particular stories at those precise moments.


puzzle pieceSome of those times, I would later realize one such word didn’t fit into what I actually wanted to say. I’d examine the thought, still enjoy the sounds of the word, the art of the text, then reluctantly replace it. But soon afterward, I would return to the random word and follow it into an entirely different story. These were adventures.

I have wondered if this is odd – but not for long. I am what I am. Today I deduce this is not that odd after all.

  1. I’m humbled and flattered. Thank you!


  2. It is not odd at all. Whatever your process is, keep it. Your words are almost musical. I can’t wait to see what’s next. 🙂


  3. I get you, it happens to me most of the time. Words are very versatile.


Your thoughts matter to me. Of course I'd like to hear from you!
