Water or Wine?

January 26, 2018

Do you agree? Is Twain's writing only water? And, beyond that, is writing "water" really such a bad thing? After all, when you think about it, we can live our whole lives without a sip of wine, however, we can only live a few days without water. Many of us write, primarily, for ourselves. But, for those of us who make our living as writers, we count on our writing being read - by as many people as possible. That helps ensure our employers keep paying us to do what we do.


And, just as many of us who write long to be remembered for our work. We aspire to be a James Joyce, a Shakespeare, or -- a Mark Twain. Twain is right, after all, everyone drinks water, and today, more than a century after his death, we're still reading his works and holding them up as examples of excellence in writing. Perhaps, writing "water" is a worthy aspiration for all of us.
