Topic: The Pen is Mightier than the Sword (04/08/10)

TITLE: A Pen In The Right Hand

I’ve been a great lover of the printed page for as long as I can remember.
Historical fiction has been my favorite as long as it is mixed, not overdone, with romance. And I don’t mean the Harlequin paperback version rather the fairy tale, rarely ever happens in real life, kind. I mean an old fashioned love affair interwoven through bloody conquests, bombed out streets of London during WWII, or in the midst of Palestine declared to be Israel once again!

Two particular authors, favorites of mine for over twenty years, Brock and Bodie Theone, have done just that. They have continued to capture the heart of people of past generations and rounding them up with a lasso of masterful historical exactness.

Most swords are either displayed in museums, hid in some obscure place,
or buried with the unfortunate victims. Yet the pen in the hand of a master writer and relentless historian will not merely resurrect a time buried under a textbook tombstone but will actually revive its dusty pages. The pages will literally fly in the hand of a lover like me. A lover of the printed page.

Thus I conclude the pen in the right hand is mightier than the sword hanging in some dry museum or laying down in a dusty attic.

It is so true how wonderful books live on and how much they can affect many.

A few typo's but rather well written. Short and to the point. Keep writing.

I really liked your last sentence said with a flare.
