Ultimate Artists

Posted on: February 13, 2012

Fiction writers are the ultimate artists, in my opinion, because we incorporate all the disciplines in our work. Like painters, we create scenes and color settings, using keystrokes rather than brush strokes. Like photographers and filmmakers, we provide snapshots of real life. The musician in us adds rhythm to our stories with ear-pleasing beats to move the action forward and keep the reader tuned-in. In the manner of a sculptor, we chip away unnecessary words and sand blemishes until the final product resembles our vision as nearly as possible. Choreographers may lead dancers across a stage, but our stories float through imaginations. Playwrights, songwriters and poets strive to choose and arrange words so that they ring with meaning and emotion. So do we. But in the end, readers—in the company of singers and actors—are the ones who breathe life into our words. God bless our readers!
