My friend Heather posted this quote on my Facebook wall. I really loved it as it expresses so much of how I feel about writing and words and all the good things that they can be.
I love language, words, and all the lovely, exciting, and heart wrenching things you can do with them. Pick the right ones, put them in the right order, and you’ve created a moment in time where the reader forgets about the late car payment, the dirty dishes, the impending workweek. You have created a state of bliss. Or negligence, depending on your perspective. ~Darynda Jones

PS. Anyone else feel this way about writing, words, and all the things that they are?
