Get the picture?
Writers do magical things. Therefore writers are magicians, but I digress. Do you remember the first book you read? No, we don’t mean the first ever, but the first that truly spoke to you, do you remember that one? This would have been the book that kept you up all night until you had read the entire thing. This would have been the book that you held against your chest after reading the last word, afraid you would fall apart. This would have been the book that changed how you viewed the world, even if just a portion of it. In short, this would have been the book that made you truly interested in reading, and perhaps writing.
If you do not believe writers rule the world then we must respectively tell you that you are crazy, respectively of course. Writers may not save babies from burning buildings or remove malignant tumors from a person’s brain, but writers change how people think and what they believe in. I believe in writers, are you with me?
