"I love it that as a writer
you work with the poetry
and music of words.
Words are as wild as rocky peaks.
They're as smooth as a millpond
and as sunny as a day in a meadow.
Words are beautiful things.
Every word matters."
~ Brian Jacques,
in The Wand in the Word:
Conversations with Writers of Fantasy
I was reading The Wand in the Word (compiled and edited by Leonard S. Marcus) the other night and this quote jumped out at me. I love Brian Jacques's description of writing! Words are beautiful things.
