Words Are My Currency
Words are my currency. I thought about putting that on my business cards because writers exchange words for a paycheck. Then, again, maybe not. I prefer to be paid with cold, hard cash.
Words are, however, a medium of exchange. Writers use words to teach, to impress, to persuade, to win over, to exhort, to move others to action, and so much more.
The currency of words flows easily for some writers and clumsily or even slowly for others. Sometimes the current of words slows to trickle or not at all. The writer’s only comfort is that writers block is only temporary.
Although most of the writers I know are rather quiet and shy, you can rest assured knowing that they are not silent. Writers write because they have a driving need to communicate. Thank heaven for that. For where would the world be without writers?
