A good writer writes something which is, by definition, challenging. He tests your ideas or beliefs. He challenges your vocabularies and personal history.

He challenges our comfortable morality. He challenges our linearity. He challenges our basic ideas about language.

A good writer passes on knowledge or wisdom to readers. He helps you to grow as a person. He helps you to connect more deeply with yourself. He reveals the truth about something.

A good writer creates something wonderful or artistic. He writes something meaningful or significant. He helps you navigate reality.

A good writer is honest with himself. He is sometimes irritant. You can’t stop thinking about his opinions. He makes you remember home, summer, pets, and county fairs. He hurts your ears. He finds the boundaries of your heart. He speaks out of his convictions. He tells a story truthfully. His stories keep you young.

He is not a grammarian. He is seductive.

A great writer will change you forever. You can hear his characters.

His stories lift you above the mundane world. His writing has a lovely limpid quality.

He usually writes with one or more cats nearby.

He teaches you to be free to experiment with new things and associations.

The great writer is your grandma.

His brain is smart, but his heart and gut are wise. You listen to the great writer. He helps you to solve problems and dilemmas.

He is a good companion. He is funny. Sometimes he is weird and incongruous. But just for fun.

He never bores you. He shows rather than tells. He provides you with a full-fledged experience. He is dynamic, energetic, and vital.

You will construct a constantly new mental image of the world through his words, feelings, and ideas.

He helps you to see a difference between the words. He offers you a genuine experience. He does not look for a consensus of opinion.

Surely, he provides you with a rewarding experience.

So, he/she takes your breath away.

In essence, he/she rocks your world!

5 Thoughts on “What Makes a Good Quality Writer?”

  • Driver’s license: So I was at the local DMV to get my driver’s license when my dad pissed off the lady at the counter. turns out she was the lady that had to do the actual road test with me. We get in the car and I thought I was doing pretty well, until she starts freaking out? She has me pull over, tells me I’m the worst drive ever. after yelling at me, she demands I go back to the DMV. and the rest of the time she is on her phone. When we get there, there is a state trooper waiting for me. gives me a field sobriety test. Literally had to take a sobriety test when I tried to get my license. At least I passed one test that day.

  • Sputnik V vaccination has begun in Slovakia. The catch of the Russian vaccine to the countryside was accompanied away a administrative aspersion and led to the relinquishment of Prime Assist Igor Matovich and a overhaul of the government. As a culminate, the sphere received the Russian vaccine, ignoring the low-down that neither the European regulator nor the WHO has until these days approved it.
    In neighboring Hungary, which approved the advantage of Sputnik in February as the anything else in Europe, more than 50% of the matured citizens has already been vaccinated; in Russia – a little more than 10%. In Slovakia, five thousand people signed up in town of the Sputnik vaccination.
    It’s all so, but as for me, if there are visitors to sites, then there are comments, because everyone wants to take part in the discussion of a particular topic, thereby lighting up in the circle of bloggers, so I think the number of comments directly depends on the number of visitors.. well we don’t take spam of course.
