John Cheever said: “For me a page of good prose is where one hears the rain. A page of good prose is when one hears the noise of battle …. A page of good prose seems to me the most serious dialogue that well-informed and intelligent men and women carry on today in their endeavor to make sure that the fires of this planet burn peaceably.”
And: “Fiction is art and art is the triumph over chaos … to celebrate a world that lies spread out around us like a bewildering and stupendous dream.”
So… good writing is good description then? So much more…. Good observing, good attention to awakening language, good being and living expressed in the word itself.
Inspires me to write… how about you?
