Wait a second, writers are supposed to pour out with an outpouring of words at the push of a pen…they say – are you kidding me, I’m already having writer’s block…
Talking about writers and writings (in English), noticed that most things begin and end with male sexuality/dominance/aggression.
the pen-is what you write with, for a start
a magazine is a holder of ammunition
a bulletin comes from bullet
dictate has the sound “dick” in it
so does the Dictionary
a word is a word with or without a sword in it
(writers do cut and chop with the finesse of that of a scalpel)
and I guess that’s why they say the pen-is mightier than the sword!
