WRITING IS ABOUT SO MUCH MORE THAN PUTTING WORDS
DOWN TO PAPER - our stories and books, poems, and written
verse, express our values and philosophies. The written word
is an expression of self, the ultimate form of conveyance, from
mind, to three-dimensional texture and surface.
Good writing is the ability to take an idea about a topic, and
formulate it into an effective piece of writing, with a clear
and interesting thesis and follow through.
The best authors incorporate the emotions, feelings, and sensations,
of their characters into their stories and verse, and convey the
emotional constructs of growth and development - the electric that
allows our characters to move forward, and change, and to experience the
virtues that make each of them different and unique. In many respects
the character(s) are the author, and vice-versa.
Our readers become our character, seeing, what our character
sees, hearing what he hears, tasting what he tastes, and so on...
The reader is drawn into our characters' thoughts, perceptions and
emotions - avataring into the deepest recesses of their minds.
