I don't know if you've ever heard the word, Cruciverbalist, but I heard it from Paul Harvey. Remember Paul Harvey? "Hello, Americans. This is Paul Harvey. Stand by for Nnneeeews!"
Well, one day Paul was sharing on one of his Rest of the Story programs and I was surprised to discover that it directly related to me. In fact, I was further amazed to learn that I was in company with a whole variety of personalities. Some of those people included actors/actresses, pharmacists, housekeepers, doctors, tailors, plumbers, fishermen and even children.
Further, my new knowledge even allowed that I had a title, something I had not been aware of, even though I had been practicing my craft for years. Now, if you have guessed that my title is Cruciverbalist, you are entirely correct. But does knowing my title help you to know what I do? No? Well, basically, I break words into pieces and create games out of them. In other words, I make word games that other people play and, hopefully, enjoy.
Do you like to do crosswords or word search puzzles? Those are only two of the types of puzzles that I create. There are many different kinds of word puzzles and I like to dabble in a variety of them.
If you do crossword puzzles, have you ever considered what kind of person might have made that puzzle? Next time you lift your pencil to solve a crossword or other word puzzle, think about who may have created that game. And by the way, do you know what your neighbor does in his/her spare time? Think about it. You just may be surprised.
