My own personal thought on writing fiction

My personal thought on writing fiction:

A storyteller conveys an interesting plot.

A writer of substance explores the human condition.

do both: be the storyteller who explores the human condition.


  1. Is this partly fuelled by our Tuesday night conversation? if so, I'm glad you, Dan and I had that particular chat. There's a lot more discussion to be had on the subject, but for a brief, insightful thought on fiction, you've fairly well articulated one of the more important struggles!

  2. Also, I meant to say, I'm part of a meme on books and writing at the moment...if you want to join in, head to for an example of the meme, create your own and tag me in my comments when you're done. Hope you're having a great day, Ant. See you soon!

  3. No, Laurie. Fun discussion though but I had this tucked away for around a month. Thanks for the comment. I'll pop over and take a look at the meme too. Sounds interesting.
