Hubber’s - the Word Connection

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

How we communicate these days is so different from our past. For example, who writes letters any more? How sad. With the advent of texting, twitter and social sites like Facebook, it is rare that many of us talk to one another face to face any more. And what’s worse, abbreviated text speak has inadvertently denigrated the use of language. For me, and I’m sure most Hubbers, the Hubpages site is a Godsend, affording writers the opportunity of practising the art of writing.

For a writer, written expression is not just a hobby or a job it is an addiction and a means by which we express our creativity. Like most creative endeavours, writers continuously search for perfection, that unique phrase, simile or metaphor that is like lilting music on the page. We practise our craft with the elegance and we hope the skill of a surgeon, to bring our thoughts and feelings to the reader. This connection is the basis of Hubpages, writers reading other writers and being consumed by the art of writing.

Whether each article reaches the reader depends on interest in the subject, quality of the writing and above all that ‘connection of the word’ , an empathy and relationship the writer has with his reader. We write differently of course, as individual as any artist, but there are features of our writing that resonates with other writers, style and word-smithing to name a few. But beyond that there is one thing that will captivate a reader even more, and that’s the soul of the writing, the writer’s underlying intent and attitude behind the work.

All this Hubpages brings to us, the writers, that and access to one another, to evaluate, express opinions and ultimately to improve the quality of our work. This community and site may have been based on an idea, but it has crested something else, a separate entity that is palpable and that inspires all of us to go on. That is the ‘Connection of the Word’ a love of language that is the soul of Hubpages.

I am grateful for Hubpages and the opportunity to learn and continue to practise my art. Thanks guys; I am your loyal subject.
