Screed and Other Bits 

I had an email from a friend today and in it she used the word "screed". I love that word - long and onerous piece of writing. There are days when every writer feels as though that is all they can produce... a screed.

Words are so magical, so powerful. They can build a picture, a story or an entire world. They have the power to enhance or command, to enrich or tear down. I think words are powerful second only to Intent.
