(Happy Throwback Thursday! This article was originally published on May 3, 2016, but its sentiments remain fresh.)
Ever question why you need to write? Not want, need. According to Gary Garrison, it’s because you have “The Gift.”
That’s the name of a short essay that Garrison sent out to fellow members of the Dramatists Guild of America. A friend sent it to me because she found it inspiring and, well, true.
Although Garrison was referring to playwriting, his words apply to bloggers, short-story writers, novelists and others of that ilk. All of them “have the ability to create whole, intricate, dimensional worlds and to people them with infinitely interesting, complex beings.”
Wait…Bloggers create worlds?
