A few months ago, I was asked to speak at a conference for the Society for Creative Anachronism’s Creative Writing in the Schools conference. A group of writers were also in the audience, and the conversation ranged from the topic of the conference itself to the importance of writing in classrooms. Of course, I had to talk about writing in the literary arts, but that wasn’t my main topic.
It began with the question, “What is the purpose of writing?”. The answer was fairly straightforward. Writers are artists, and they share the same purpose as artists. In order to achieve their goal, they must write.
Writing is a form of expression. That doesnt mean that everyone can or must be a writer. Many people can create art or music, but being a writer is a special skill. Of course, it does mean that a lot of people are not capable of writing. That said, writing is extremely important to the people who are capable of it.
I know there are some people who think that writing is not a very important skill to have. I disagree. I think that the ability to write is just as important as being a good artist or musician. If you have an excellent artist or musician in your life you will certainly be able to write by them. However, if you are a writer, you will probably be able to do it on your own.
I have two friends who are musicians and both of them are also artists. This is the first time I’ve ever seen them both do it. The first one, who is the one who writes the majority of our novels, is a wonderful writer. She is also a beautiful writer. She is, however, so terrible at writing stories.
We are talking about a person who is a writer. The second one is a musician.
It will be a long winter.
They may not be able to write a story by themselves, but they can certainly write one. Most people who write stories are not artists, but they can certainly do it. They just may have an easier time of it.
I think we can all agree that there are a lot of people who write great stories, and a lot of people who do it poorly. A lot of it comes down to the question of how talented the writer is. If they can write a great novel, there is a very good chance they can also write a great story. A great novelist is able to make even the most basic details in a story come alive. A great storyteller can make the details pop out.
It’s a little hard to see how a writer who doesn’t look like a writer could possibly tell great stories. But I’m going to give you a hint. It wouldn’t be too hard to find a great novelist, but it would be a little tricky to find a great storyteller. After all, if you are going to be a good storyteller, you probably have to be able to write a good novel.
