Oeuvre

Oeuvre [œ-vruh]: a sorta difficult word to pronounce if you haven’t run across it before, meaning (in this case) all the works written and published by this writer guy—like ever. A good synonym for oeuvre would be corpus, but doesn’t corpus just sound a little bit too much like corpse, which isn’t what I want my written words to be. I want them to live. And to live they must be read. So go ahead and check them out. Read them. Link to them. Tweet about them. Hell, buy a book of mine or with one of my stories and share it with your friends. It’s okay, these words were written to entertain, delight, shock, move. If they didn’t accomplish at least one of these things then they wouldn’t be here, as they’d be less than corpses; they’d be unborn. So enjoy a work or two. Or go right ahead and enjoy the whole oeuvre.
