Words have always been my thing. What’s yours?
I read books to get lost in the words and the worlds they create.
I remember thousands of song lyrics and am well known for having a song for every occasion. Even after 18 years the husband claims he hasn’t heard some of the ones I suddenly bring forth.
I used to love to act on stage – not for the glory or the applause, but for the words.
All the ‘proper jobs’ I’ve ever had have involved either speaking or writing. (As a major part of the job, I mean; I know most people speak and many write at work!)
I watch films and forget who was in them – I even forget I’ve seen them, but you can bet I remember the great line that made me laugh, or think, or cry.
Apparently I learned to speak, and to sit looking at books, earlier than I learned to walk. Which makes me either a fast developer, or a slow one, depending on your point of view.
I knew from the age of eight that I would write.
It took me until age cough39cough to take that eight year old seriously. She sat, patiently waiting, and grabbing every opportunity to write when I let her.
Finally, I’m listening to the words. They’ve always been there.
Words are definitely my thing. What’s yours?
