How would you define the art of writing?
Writing is an art. An art that I would love to be better at, but right now I’ll take what I can get.
I look forward to hearing what I can do better from my critics. Which by the way rea many. That’s not a bad thing either.
But, what is writing really? Is it the art of setting word to type or paper? Is it the art of hearing something and turning it into a story?
Is it the art of interviewing or researching? How about talking to people?
Whatever you feel writing is E.L. Doctorow had his own definition of writing and I find it to be 100% true.
What are you thoughts?
Planning to write is not writing. Outlining, researching, talking to people about what you’re doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing.
