Authors are amongst the most caring and optimistic people around the world. In great writing, whether an author writes fiction or non-fiction, their words spread across the page or screen with such passionate content that can only come from the heart. With this passion, a reader will truly feel a connection with the author regardless if the reader agrees with the author about the subject matter.
A story well-written from the heart will leave an impact on the reader for years to come. A prolific reader may not remember the title of the vast amount of books read, but will remember the character or event that the author instilled into the writing that made the reader care about the story which is a direct link from the authors heart to their fingertips. A well written romance by an author who truly believes in love will touch the hearts of all romance readers as most people have loved and lost. An edge of the seat thriller has to keep the reader caring about some aspect, be it a character or the plot. Even the antagonist must create a spark of empathy for the reader to care which can only come from the author.
In the words of the great Earnest Hemingway, “Writing is easy. All you have to do is sit down at the typewriter and bleed”
