Words words words

We try to wander through the dictionary given some idea of direction towards illuminating this life for ourself (and others) by describing it in some new and vivid way. I have a novel out where I try (through the auspices of a Nun and a Dragon) to show how the world can be transformed for us without intervention of gods or catastrophes, but by stretching out the definition of love to include a
wider range of life and living. I thought I found the words this time. Some cliches were dropped and some polished off.
In Hamlet the weary prince is asked what he is reading. “Words, words, words,” he replies enigmatically.
I don’t want to feel the same description of what I am writing would be returned
should someone inquire.
Maybe dreams,dreams, dreams? hopes, hopes, hopes?

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
