Some writing I connect with, it’s effortless to read, smooth and flowing. It’s almost as if I’m there with the author reading it to me … and not just fiction or poetry, I’ve experienced the same in serious writing too …
Other writing is like pulling my own fingernails out, utter boredom and turns me from a concentrated spectator to someone with the attention span of a goldfish …
Are some writers special snowflakes – lady luck shines on them ? Or is there room to change from a mediocre or wannabe writer to an awesome writer through effort and practice ?
IS there a je ne sai quoi, a special something that separates the women from the girls and the men from the boys when it comes to writing ?
Talent ? Skill ? Practice ? Passion ? Enthusiasm ? Creativity ? Empathy ? Intelligence ? Rich parents ? Chocolate ?
Some of you aren’t writers, some are wannabe writers and some of you are writers – what do you think it is that makes a writer a special snowflake, versus the rest of us ?
