“Writing is a mysterious activity.” Susan Sontag, the late American author.
I don’t get it. I wrote a short story in junior high that my teacher published and a poem that a high school instructor particularly liked.
I cannot do sophisticated physics and was challenged by organic chemistry. But give me a chance to write fiction or nonfiction and the piece is usually appreciated, thank God.
I have learned writing techniques, rules and guidelines, but, at its heart, why people enjoy my writing is a mystery.
One thought on “Mystery”
We all yearn for authenticity.
