“The Writer is the Tool” (William DeSouza ©2016)



A writer can set the scene for the reader. At the waters’ edge, a narrow window ledge, a cavernous vessel, or a brave new world of fire and ice.

A writer can create life from the imagination where dreams and fantasy merge and become real. Characters’ flow from the page; a blank canvas for heroes and villains, new born to aged; living a life from inception to the final hours of existence.

A writer can convey a feeling out of nothing. A blank stare to passion and lust, anger and loathing, fear and dread. The soft caress of a lover’s character brought to life in one chapter can become jealous and loathing in another.

A writer can create or destroy whole worlds. A soft, sun drenched park where shimmering shadows dance across two lovers entwined in passionate love; or where children play one moment, can become a battle scarred and scorched theatre of war.

The writer is the tool of the readers’ imagination where the interplay of words dance and blend together. Writers incite visions in the mind of readers, allowing an escape from reality.
