The Writing and Reading Process

wordpress 11

 

I write for two reasons. The first is for release. The second is so that others might appreciate what has been written. My hope is that those who venture to this space will see beyond the words.

 

It is my firm belief that no two people will read the same piece and have the same experience. There is no possible way for two people, even identical twins, to have the same exact thoughts, views, memories, and struggles. Because of this, the interpretation of a written work will vary from person to person. This is the beauty in writing.

 

It detracts from any reader’s ability to create a meaningful connection to a poem, short story, or book for a writer to go on record making a statement about what he or she intended with a word, phrase, statement, etc. Even for myself, my visions change when writing versus having read it later or even having discussions with friends.

 

Enjoy.

 

Light the way
