One thing that always amazes me is how many different ways there are to look at something. When the same writing assignment is given to many writers, the variety of results will boggle the mind.
Ideas are what differentiate one person from another and even when ideas start to coincide, perspectives add another dimension to the similar thoughts that are there in beginning.
We are so lucky that every person thinks in a unique way or what would writers write about? We have been told that there are only so many plots or themes out there, yet writers continue to amaze and startle us with their interpretation of those themes. From the depths of souls and escaping from often warped minds, come a wealth of material and stories that cause us to face them with shock and awe. We are in disbelief at the turn this story took or the basis for that writing. Unbelievable concepts and unlikely character pairings bring us some of the best writing possible.
How boring the literary world would be without people who could see beyond the norm and capture moments and ideas that make no sense when first conceived. The writer that plods on to explore worlds that only exist in their minds is fearless. They are travelers never thwarted by barriers the less timid of us could not break down.
Our world is only made worth living by those giant intellects and imaginative brave souls that can traverse unseen worlds and bring to life exotic creatures and impossible characters of note.
Thank God for writers and their fantastic gift he provided them.
