“Words are easy, like the wind; faithful friends are hard to find.”
How apt! What I deciphered from this quote is it is very hard to find right words for the right moment and the one who knows this art can win every situation.
We are in times where presentation and packaging is so important and words are an important part of that machinery. People tend to forget actions but words carve a deeper place in their memories. If you don’t believe me go back in time and check your General knowledge/ social question papers. There will be one such question for sure which asked you to name the person who quoted following words. I am sure you would find one. Let’s take a cue from current situation. People base their decision to vote for a particular candidate in elections after listening a great deal to their speeches and speeches are nothing but words. Words used with great articulation, punctuation and emotion to connect. So it’s all about words. Words can make or break. One should be watchful, tactful about using words, if possible artistic as well 🙂
That was all about how to use your words – Right words, right time, right pitch – job done period.
But how come words can be a source of income. I say why not? There was a time when I was searching my place in this cosmos writing came to my rescue. I started writing and I am here in front of you, with you precisely. These words are my way of communicating with you all. But blog writing these days is a reliable source of income for many who wants an additional stream of income or simply a comfortable office space not hovered by a boss around. Not just blog writing, but content writing, technical writing, review writing, script writing, column writing… you name it and there will be numerous employers who are ready to shell out their pockets for those who can use their words artistically coupled with knowledge. And if your pen have poetic flair and mind have imaginative bent then words can dance to your tune followed by fame and we call such people “Lyricists and writers”. Remember old classics that you still hum and feel relaxed or a book that you have read nth number of times but it still gives you the same high every time your eyes meet it. That’s the magic of beautiful words.
To put it shortly and sweetly its all about how you use words. They can rescue you from your boring cubicle 🙂 Give “words” a chance they have power.
