For some people writing is something that is looked at as a hobby; something to do in your spare time, or when the mood strikes. Some of those people have lost the ability to dream and have more than likely settled in to the typical 9 to 5 job. Writers on the other hand rely their ability to dream.
There’s a specific skill set that comes with being a writer; we rely on our creativity, imaginations, and our ability to daydream excessively, and it’s only when all of these elements mix together that they form a writer.
But there’s something else that also forms and it’s something that we see every time we read an authors work. An author is able to express their innermost thoughts in a way that only artists can. We communicate our message through every sentence, every paragraph, and every page. Expressing ourselves and of course or unique writing style.
When we’re able to communicate properly through our work, we’re able to capture the reader’s attention as well as their imagination, and that is what truly makes a writer, is their ability to communicate what they’ve created to the reader.
These are the skills that a writer must rely on; because without our creativity, imagination, ability to dream, daydream, and communicate our written work, we’re just another 9 to 5 everyday Joe, who’s lost their ability to dream.
That’s why we’re writers; because we refuse to let go of our creative side as well as our imaginations. They’re a part of we are and they’re a part of our skills.
