This article is dedicated to Jane Yolen and Ray Bradbury (in memoriam).
A good writer writes something that, by definition, is challenging. It tests your ideas or beliefs. Challenge your vocabulary and your personal history.
Challenge our comfortable morality. Challenge our linearity. Challenge our basic ideas about language.
A good writer conveys knowledge or wisdom to readers. It helps you grow as a person. It helps you connect more deeply with yourself. Reveal the truth about something.
A good writer creates something wonderful or artistic. Write something meaningful or meaningful. It helps you navigate reality.
A good writer is honest with himself. Sometimes it is irritating. You can’t stop thinking about their opinions. It reminds you of home, summer, pets, and county fairs. It hurts your ears. Find the limits of your heart. Talk about your convictions. Tell a story sincerely. Their stories keep you young.
He is not a grammarian. He is seductive.
A great writer will change you forever. You can hear their characters.
Their stories elevate you above the mundane world. His writing has a beautiful limpid quality.
He tells you a secret. You will have conversations with him at the bus stop. Visits you in your dreams. Helps you find your own voice.
He is the perfect librarian. The perfect editorialist. The perfect news anchor.
He narrates our time. Break the rules.
He always asks “what if …”
It mixes with love.
It takes you to the clearing where the wizard appears. He is the magician. He is a healer.
He usually writes with one or more cats nearby.
It teaches you to be free to experiment with new things and associations.
The great writer is your grandmother.
Your brain is smart, but your heart and instinct are wise. You listen to the great writer. It helps you solve problems and dilemmas.
He is a good companion. He is funny. Sometimes it is strange and incongruous. But just for fun.
He never bores you. It shows more than it counts. He provides you with a complete experience. It is dynamic, energetic and vital.
You will build a constantly new mental picture of the world through your words, feelings, and ideas.
It helps you see the difference between the words. It offers you a genuine experience. It does not seek a consensus of opinion.
Surely, it gives you a rewarding experience.
So, it takes your breath away.
In essence, he / she shakes up your world!
