Being a "good writer" simply means to open a door. In our messed up world, where technology governs our mornings, evenings, and nights, reading - and writing - is an escape. Only truly gifted writers can create and warp and manipulate words to formulate an entirely new universe; one where you're a vagabond traveling the seven seas, or a man turned into a bug, or even the member of a Dionysian cult. Writing gives form to the seeds of imagination that lay sallow in our minds - it fertilizes them, waters them, allows them to grow into lush gardens of questions and ponderings and adventure. Gifted writers are able to pull their readers in to their twisted reflection of reality, making them feel like it's true, even for just a moment. And most of all, a real writer understands that they must give their reader closure. In a world where uncertainty plagues every aspect of our lives, such closure is immensely freeing. It makes sense, and it makes us want more, because who doesn't want the answers to the seemingly unanswerable questions that torment us on the daily?
