WRITING IS FOR THE BIRDS …

I wanted to say in the title of this post … Something about the “goals” of being a writer … But as I think of my writing, I don’t set out with a goal, per se … However I do set out with an idea, with a spark, with some form of inspiration … A nudge from “THE SECRET OTHER” as I guess most people do …

I think most writers including myself, would believe that goals are achieved intuitively … Good and great writing achieved … Through perhaps subconscious or conscious means …

I am sure everyone has their stories … Shakespeare has often taken me (through his writing) to a place of very deep understanding … Of just what it means, to be a human being, with all of its pleasures and struggles … ie: Hamlet …

Edgar Allan Poe has taken me to the wonders and miracles and insights of the extreme imagination …

Charles Dickens seems to create and bring to life the environment and people being written about … ie: ‘A Christmas Carol’ …

Miguel de Cervantes … In the humor of Don Quixote

So, finally to say, in my humble opinion, writing should make you appreciate life and move you to be glad you’ve been given the chance to experience it … Both the good and the bad … And hopefully to find out exactly what measure of both good and evil resides inside of you … So … IMHO, writing maybe does some good somewhere along this line of life … But mainly it is for the birds after all someone has to feed them … littleraventhepoet.blog … Frank Payton
