The power of words

Words are incred­ible. We use them to describe our dreams, share our exper­i­ences and tell stor­ies from the past. They can pro­voke tears and laughter; gen­er­ate anger, trust, com­pas­sion and fear. What else is so power­ful?

Words are a writer’s most import­ant tool. They reveal facts, explain what’s going on and  paint verbal images of people, places and per­cep­tions. And depend­ing on what word we select, our sen­tences have power and impact or are ho-hum, mediocre or even tedi­ous.

Take two minutes to view a great example of The Power of Words. In this case, a pic­ture (okay, a video) really is worth 1,000 words.
