The Art of Writing

The Art of Writing is more than just adding something to paper, it is caring about what is actually written.  The term author is used too frequently and should only be given to a select few.  It should be given to the writer who enjoys writing for the sake of the art of writing.  More and more so-called authors are writing books so they can gain popularity or money.  They don’t care what they write or what their books stand for.  I’m sorry if this offends but writing filthy sex scenes just to make a dollar is not what writing should be about. I have written before on this blog that without writing we wouldn’t be where we are as a society. To write good stories you have to dedicate your time to write, edit, and rewrite your story until you have a well-written polished manuscript.  Writing good content makes us stronger in several ways.

1. Makes us more intellectual. Why does it make us smarter?  Well, if you are truly a good writer than you have definately did your research and wrote about things you know about.  You can’t just pick up a pen and write something that you haven’t studied because no one would read it.

2. Helps to shape our morals. Even if the story is not intended for this purpose, writing can shape the morals of the individual reader.  Especially children who are at a formative stage of life.  Then, adults can be desensitized to things that they once considered unmoral.

3. Helps us learn to interpret things in different ways. A reader may interpret a story in a different way than the author intended. They may read something once and think the writer is writing something sarcastic by interpreting the tone differently.  It is the same as speech.  One might say: How are you today.  The reply might be: I’m fine.  Or: I’m just great.  The second impression implies sarcasm.

4. Helps us to see other people’s views.  Just because you have certain beliefs, other people may think differently about the same situation.  For example: A woman kills her boyfriend after years of abuse.  Some may say send her to jail.  Or, others may say she was justified.  Writing can help us to learn why something happened and not just see the outcome.

    Really good, “writing can shape the morals of the individual reader.” That’s so powerful.
