A Way With Words: a collection of 25 short stories.
We may choose our words carefully or use them without thought. They might be employed to get our message across, or hide what we’re feeling. They can be tools, gifts or weapons. We need them for the games we play, the work we do and the excuses we make.
Words are written or typed, texted, emailed, signed or spoken. They’re heard, misheard, remembered forever or forgotten in an instant. Strung together they create fact or fiction, tell lies or the truth.
Whether compliments or taunts, hard to spell or difficult to say, formal, familiar or foreign, long or short, the words we use all influence the stories we tell. This book contains 25 of them.
