No experience goes to waste.
An interesting thing about writing is how it impacts on the mind. No experience good or bad ever goes to waste. Each small element of a situation or incident is ripe for use on the page. Every emotion is something to treasure and try to recapture in words—all grist to the mill of the author exploring the world of and with words. The last few weeks I’ve had an interesting education in discovering the many nuances of being in pain. The shade and light of this physical sensation is something most writers explore in one way or another and I thought I’d share some of the words that might be used to describe it.
I am sure you can add to this list but here are some of the ones I’ve been thinking about. I think the worst level of pain in them is relentless. Which one do you think carries the most weight?
Thanks for reading.
