About “The Magic Words”
“The Magic Words” houses the author’s experiments with selecting words and placing them in a significant order. Most of the content found here are drafts or writing exercises. The auhor seeks to improve her writing by first teaching herself to write more frequently.
The blog name “The Magic Words” refers to the fact that the author’s writing is posted so that it can be read by other people. By allowing other people to read her work, the author relinquishes control over the words and allows them to morph. The same words can create different images and effects for different readers; the way someone reacts to a work is dependent on that person’s life experiences.
Differences in images and effects can become great subjects for discussions, and similarities create connections between those who experience them. Conveying similar ideas can be done by using universal symbols or archetypes; and these elements, along with other aspects like the narrative’s events, will be nearly equivalent for every reader.
If the power of language to affect an individual in a way that is both personal/internal and interpersonal/external isn’t magical, then what is?
