Words should not just convey information. Too many words have been wasted on bits of information. Anybody can convey information with words: the Taiwanese or Japanese manufacturers who write instruction manuals where slips in spelling and syntax are readily forgiven; the signs on storefronts, advertisements, and a whole deluge of internet postings and web blogs where words are often posted in a hurry and without much thought. These are mere words, and not writing. Writing is different. Good writing should inspire, making us want to do great things. It should be life-giving, breathing hope and love into weary hearts.
