Wouldn't it be nice if we all knew each and every aspect of good writing? Looking back at the masters, I wonder if they knew exactly what they were doing, or if perhaps they may have been making up the rules as they went along.
Today, we can delve into this cataclysm of knowledge by taking classes that can present much of the tried and true methods that work or have been tried and failed; but the real key is the drive of the writer. There are many writers driven to write the next Pulitzer Prize winning novel, but for each one of them, there are thousands if not hundreds of thousand who write just for the sake of telling a story. That story could be based on fact or pure fiction, it doesn't matter, its still a story, one that haunts the writer until he or she has satisfied that inner desire to share it with you and I.
Are you that type of person? Are you motivated by some inner desire to tell the world a story? If you are, you are in good company!
