Practical insights for writers from Jessica P Morrell

Written By: Jessica Morrell - Oct• 20•17

A writer, like all artists, gives the gift of release to our audience by naming their feelings. We know light on water, the sight of a baby, the bucket that tips off the ladder, the pain of loss, the endless pain of injustice, but until it is written, it is just an impression that dances and strains under the surface of the brain’s sheath. By giving it the concrete form of language, writers light up the brain with yes. Yes! Yes! That’s what it looks like, feels like, tastes like, to be alive, thank you. The recognition is the release. ~ Nicola Wheir, The Nanny Diaries
