Hi, I’m Shaun McIntosh
My writing philosophy for this website is summed up in the logo and the slogan that accompanies it.
“Calamus Gladio Fortior!”
This is the Latin translation of a quote you may have heard from author Edward Bulwer-Lytton. “The pen is mightier than the sword!” I have echoed this thought for the sites logo, the Calamus. Two crossed quills in a bottle of ink and a sword running between them.
Words are mighty. It’s amazing how simple dots on a page can elevate someones spirit from night to day. A clever turn of phrase can turn the tide of an election, make millions on the market, or enrapture the soul of a single person. They can make a heart or break a heart, as the Word says:
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”Proverbs 18: 21 NKJV
As a freelancer, this is the promise I make to my clients; that every word I put down will be as carefully chosen as the disciples of Christ. For there’s no other way to move an audience than with the exacting precision of the word. It was in a verse that the world was created and it’s in a verse that it may be recreated. True creation may be out of our grasp, but recreation, through the word, is a gift for all men.
But please don’t take these flowery words at face value. See for yourself in my articles section and judge the quality of my work. I’m constantly working on new projects to grow my portfolio. Check back often to see what new content I’ve added.
