A writer’s life is in a type of metamorphosis, as life passes by and years unfold a unique change has occurred in their writing skills. From poetry to prose, academics to artistry, or musing to marketing; all become steps toward transformation.
Writing skills are being edited as time reveals new voices in an author’s abilities. In some societies this is called progression; I’d like to think of it as a type of metamorphosis. Whether one believes in a God who over-sees all or some evaluation of life, there are changes happening daily.
It’s no different for a writer’s life. Maybe they began writing letters to a pen-pal or scribbling notes to a friend. Words grew until their skin became too tight. Then the word critter within had to be fed and fed and fed until it was fully satisfied. Finally, content with itself the writer’s words rests and waits for the next stage. While under its protective covering something special takes place. One day amazing emerges. What takes flight is a book author!
