My rant from the last few blog posts continues.
As you may have gathered, I’m a proponent of encouraging people everywhere to try writing. Writing is an intensely mental exercise. For the person doing the writing, stringing words together into sentences has the effect of triggering new ideas and creating clarity out of chaos. A mind that is used to writing is a mind that is used to thinking. We need more clear thinkers. On the other hand, readers get exposed to new ideas and a chance to embrace new truths. It’s a win-win situation.
I fully understand a lot of writing is junk. A lot of what get’s published on Amazon by indie writers is pretty bad. And that’s okay. With so many readers, the good stuff will rise to the top. More writing may mean more bad writing, but it also means more great writing from (as yet) undiscovered writers.
And I welcome that.
