We know the power of the spoken word is mighty. After all, that’s how politician’s get elected (well, sort of … lol). When they deliver a speech to their audience (almost always a pre-prepared, well written one, I might add), it can, sometimes make a significant difference in the outcome of an election.
The written word (read – not spoken) is equally powerful but usually in a more measured way. It entertains, suggests, cojoles, encourages, explains, excites, fascinates, and so on.
Finding just the right words for your written piece (document, story, article, book, poem) can be a challenge.
Locating potential possibilities of words is very easy today. Simply browse online using your favorite search engine and look for all the variations of the potential word(s) you may want to use. Just, please, don’t plagiarize (take the work of someone else and pass it off as your own).
As you write, think about what you’d like your written piece to achieve. Does it make your point? Is it clear and understandable? Does it flow? Is there a beginning, middle and end? Have you edited for grammatical errors and typos, we all make mistakes during the typing process. Did you enjoy the creative process?
If you believe you’ve accomplished these things (with your written piece) then publish – On your blog (web) site or in one of the numerous places (remember to research – search engine … hello?) online that are actively looking for fresh written material (some of you will be surprised how many websites are currently looking for new content “every day” to share with their viewers/readers).
Good Luck ~ may the written force be with you,

I believe the written word is actually more powerful because people usually think before they write than before they speak. Of course, much of what people say eventually is written down; depending on the individual and the circumstances. But, if somebody writes something down, they usually have a tough time being credible by saying they miswrote.
I agree, much easier to say I misspoke, not that many would admit it of course!
I agree with Renard, you are gifted with words. Thank you fro the tips, Penny!
Always a pleasure, Amy, thank you for the lovely compliment dear friend of mine. xx
AnElephantCant argue with Penny
She writes nothing that he can dispute
He proof reads what he writes
And researches all night
But it seems the written word is not his strong soot!!!!
Oh dear – If someone was grading my posts – I know there’d be lots of red marks for corrections to be made. 😆

I think NOT! 🙂 xo
As for writers ~ words are how we breathe, the ink is our blood…. without either, what are we?
Good question … to be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer … whoops got carried away! A valid point for the written word and those who write them Roxi! xx
Ahhh yes…. The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them?……
Oh this can be fun! A Shakespearean exchange dost thou challenge?
