Writing is the Art of Allowing Others to Read What's on Your Mind
Winston Churchill once said: "History will be kind to me because I am going to write it." He didn't do quite that, but his actions did contribute to those who did write history. Since Churchill spoke and acted clearly, it was easy to understand the written history.
Most writers of non-fiction can express events with clarity. Writers are readers, too. Once the facts make a solid entry into their brains, they seem to flow out of the fingertips with ease.
It's not quite that simple, though. The sensibility is wrapped in the grammar, spelling and punctuation the writer uses. Together, they bring clarity, expression and understanding to the reader.
Now that you know what goes into the fine art of writing, I'm sure you are ready to give it a try. As Neil Gaiman once said, "This is how you do it: sit down at the keyboard and put one word after another until it's done. It's that easy and that hard."
