I went to swim again into the internet’s waters to research about the two kinds of writers in the world of literature in general. It doesn’t matter the genre, the style of the writing, etc. It doesn’t matter the age, gender, social status of each writer. But I’m having a situation in here where there are more than two kinds… so why people is insisting to say “two kinds”?… I just don’t get it, and I don’t want to, since all the “kinds” makes sense to me, the writer.
So, here there are, the two kind of writers that are and are not…
– Those who write what they know and those who write in order to know.
– Those who write the Truth and those who don’t.
– Those that make you think, and those that make you wonder.
– One is a writer who’s always telling you things you never thought of, or didn’t know before. The other is a writer who’s telling you things that you do know but that you’ve never quite formulated for yourself.
– One is in love with words, and the other is in love with imagery.
– The established and emerging. If you’re among the latter, you begin not with the written word, but with an idea.
– There are those who know what they are going to write from the beginning to the end. And there are those who just sit down, put the pen in their hand and, like water-skiing, let the boat pull them.
– The hedgehogs and foxes. The fox knows many things, the hedgehog knows just one thing.
– The talented and gifted. Talented writers “convey” while gifted writers “translate.”
– Those who make you think, ‘Yes that’s the way it is’ and those who make you think, ‘I never supposed it could be like that.”
– The good and bad, yet the ones who are successful are equally good or bad, what sets them apart is that they persist and have discipline.
– One wishes to consider language transparent, able to be shared by everyone, and the other wishes to invent a language of his or her own, which is obscure.
– A-writers and B-writers. A-writers are storytellers, B-writers are users of language.
– Those who reinforce what the public thinks, the conventional values, and those who constantly interrogate the conventional values.
– One responds to life itself. The other responds to the history of the art.
– Those who are interesting and those who are boring.. but what’s interesting and boring? … I leave that to the perception of each reader.
– There are architects and gardeners. The architecs design and build, while the gardeners dig a hole and plant the seed to see what comes up.
– Those who write because they can’t talk and those who write because they talk so much.
– Those who are natural storytellers and those who instinctively know how to craft good prose.
And, it goes on and on…
