Do you imagine someone who just has a story to tell? It could be a sad story, one with a happy ending, one that leaves you wondering "what if..." anything really.
Do you imagine them to be someone who has an agenda? A purpose? A message?
Do writers enlighten you?
What do they do? Not just for you, but for humanity?
The reason I ask this question today is because of a post that I read earlier today by a self-proclaimed whistleblower. It really moved me to see how this one individual so eloquently wrote about his concerns for our country, our environment, our rights and our economy and challenged people to stand up for themselves and be counted.
So I am asking this question of my readers. What do you think the role is of a writer? Do they have more than entertainment value in your life? Please share your thoughts on the role of writers. I'm interested to hear what you have to say...
