Quill-Driver

Tuesday’s word:

Quill-driver – a clerk, scribe or hackney writer.

This word prompts some pretty accurate imagery. I imagine someone hunch shouldered jamming the tip of an old school feather quill into parchment and writing feverishly. Or, more contemporarily someone surrounded by Mt. Dew Code Red bottles & clat clat clattering their keyboard until they’ve produced the self published title of the century.

Quill-driver.

  1. Writers write.

      I’m glad to see you on here – I hope you like the blog!

  2. I would have expected you to take that one in another direction entirely…

  3. I went there…in my head!
