What Is Best In Life…for a writer

What is best in life?
To crush your enemies…to see them driven before you…to hear the lamentations of their women! Perfect if you are Conan. Not so much if you’re Joe Average trying to get past the daily routines of life. I think that’s why I write, to escape the humdrums of the world. Don’t get me wrong, I love my life and everybody in it. However, to be able to create a completely new world, new races and creatures…and then to thrust them into adventures, that is what is best in life. To be a writer is the closest any human can be to god. Breathing life into a new world and then determining that world’s fate. Choosing their heroes and villains, setting them on a course of discovery and trials and finally bringing their story to an ending…or to the start of the next adventure.
To write is to escape. To bring the thoughts and images that wander through our brains and give them descriptions and therein, life. To enrich them with purpose and direction, to lift them beyond words and into a story and then to share that story with others. Even if only one person reads it, it has served its purpose and the writer his.
What is best in life?
To capture your thoughts… To see them written before you… To hear their story told aloud!
