What writing does

Writing takes you to another dimension.
Reading is one – you assemble
images and understanding
from particles. By writing
you become what is closer
to a creator or god: you create universes
from particulate matter.

– James Steerforth (© 2012)

The challenge at Trifecta was to write about why we write … this is a more oblique treatment in 35 words.

    I’ve always loved the fact that one can create and dismantle whole worlds with a few pen/pencil/key strokes (:

    “You create universes | from particulate matter.” I love the idea here, and the way the words flowed. Nicely done.

  3. A lovely creation here.
