Want to get better at writing? Respect words.

Words are my shit.

I love finding new words, refurbishing old ones, and gaining a deeper understanding of life through understanding words better.

I also have found that this makes writing easier for me; hopefully resulting in better writing for you.

Why? I'm not sure. But some of the greatest writers have thought the same:

"You'll never make your mark as a writer unless you develop a respect for words and a curiosity about their shades of meaning that is almost obsessive." – William Zinsser (From his book, On Writing Well).

Do you respect words and have an intrinsic desire to understand their shades of meaning?
