“Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds.” – Elie Wiesel
word / n.
The Canadian Oxford Dictionary defines “word” first and foremost as: “a sound or combination of sounds forming a meaningful element of speech …”
Words are special. By definition, to be words – and not just unintelligible sounds or trifling squiggles on a page – they must have meaning. In fact they must be filled with meaning, or meaning full. Words are what give us the ability to form thoughts and communicate ideas.
They are not to be taken for granted. Words can be piercing and powerful, or lifeless and dull. They can inspire and move us, or leave us enfeebled and demoralized. They can convey truth or error, be plain or fancy, lofty or base. My blog is where I play with words.
Whether it’s news releases, newsletters, video scripts, speeches, articles or books, I also work with them to help you find the right words to carry the ideas and messages from your organization to the people that need to receive them. I craft words that go out and get through.
