Word for Thought

Maverick

n. An unorthodox or independent-minded person

My favourite words change with time, just as favourite songs do. In the past I have loved words like rhetorical, veracity and the cliche, ‘serendipity’, but recently through thesaurus I came across the work maverick, and I’ve developed a kind of affinity towards it. I love words. Whether they are featured in prose or poetry, are in Hindi or English(the two languages I speak), or even Japanese(I’m learning). I love words because they invoke emotion, and I believe that is nothing short of magic, that a particular sound or strokes of ink on paper, can invoke deep emotions. My love for the written word is one of the reasons that I want to be an author. I hope you too appreciate words and understand how special they are.
