In my opinion writing is an Art. I mean what else would you call the ability of a person to unite ideas, concepts, realities, experiences, imaginations, and fantasies with creative thoughts into a world that sometimes transcends actuality; yet represents the truth, it’s nothing short of art.
It is also therapeutic art. It releases the author’s mind by allowing expression free from bias and inhibitions. It goes beyond even the author’s realm into the mind of the readers taking them away from their present moment, either for a minute or longer to impact a message that can excite or otherwise.
Writing is an Art, the union of ideas, realities, imaginations, and creative thoughts to create a MASTERPIECE or a GIANT FLOP.
