This and That


By Sharmini Jayawardena

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!
