Making Magic with Words

I do need to remember that it’s just about writing words, and loving them and cultivating them so that they make magic. It’s not about complexity, simplicity is often best, take the example from the science fiction writer Fredric Brown below:

The Shortest Horror Story

OK, so it’s a little gimmicky, but it’s also a little bit genius. It’s a reminder to practice paring down writing and ideas so that the magic isn’t hidden away by all the fluff around the edges. Every word should fight for its right to be there. Not unlike my day-job writing contracts. I love words.
