What is a Writer?


I’ve seen several people’s description of a “Writer”.  Looking at Dictionary.com, it says that it is “a person engaged in writing books, articles, stories”, etc.

It also says it is a “person who commits his or her thoughts to writing”.

When I looked up the word “Author”, I found “a person who writes a novel, poem, essay, etc.”

None of these descriptions are very flowery or complimentary.  The closest thing to something really nice that I found was under the definition of “Author”, it also says “the maker of anything; creator; originator”.

Now THAT I like.  When I’m writing, I am lost in this other world of my own creation.  So “Creator” and “Originator” seem quite appropriate.

BUT I have NEVER seen a description of a Writer so beautifully and eloquently done as it was done by Morgan over at Booknvolume. https://booknvolume.com/

This is what she had to say:

“To Write; To Paint with Words as an Artist Bedecks his canvas with hues and shades and layers of pigmentation; To Sing a Melody upon which the gaze may Linger and over which the Heart may Muse again and again: To Create visual Splendour with grammar and language that is, perhaps, fundamentally underutilized or neglected ( and to use Capitalization in the most maddening, although previously explained, manner), to me, is the most Beguiling form of Intoxication in which I could ever take Pleasure and, for you, Dear Intrepid Reader, to Undertake the Journey; to Brave the Frontier of Superfluous Verbosity and reach the shore with a Smile (though, perchance, to some extent exhausted), is, Hopefully, far more Rewarding an Endeavor than many.”

Just amazing!

This woman is a multi-faceted talent!  Please be sure to read the entire post and browse her blog.  Her writing is beautiful, alluring, often sensual and always a delightful surprise!

Thank you Morgan https://booknvolume.com/2017/06/07/happy-bnversary-four-years-of-blather/  (see the entire post here) for your eloquence and beauty.  You are an inspiration to readers and romantics everywhere!
