I like words.
I like fat words like turpitude and podgy, and I like creaky words like cantankerous and intransigent. I like slippery “V” words, such as suave, svelte, verve. I like words that crunch when spoken, like grapple or chomp. I like elegant, flowery words such as elysium or halcyon. I like sniggly, chuckling words like giggle, cowlick and burp.
I like being a freelance writer because I get to use all these words and ever-so-many more in stories that make readers laugh, cry, rage, learn, enjoy and remember.
I’d like to make some words for you.
