Words

Penny shared this quote in one of my online groups & I absolutely love it! I think it perfectly describes the magic of words well used, stories well told ...


"There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic." -- Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale
