DP: What’s your hidden talent?

Ironically enough, it’s writing. When I wrote a miniature play, which I hope to expand one day, the teacher it was presented to seemed quite surprised, and gave me one immediate line of feedback, “Never stop writing.” And as you can see with this Post-a-Day challenge, there’s no chance of that happening!

Writing is an amazing art – it’s on the opposite side of the spectrum with calculations and proofs, and may seem a bit unruly to a person who rather favors that spectrum, but for a writer… it’s really something magical. Having words flow out of you, and watching a story unfold. Seeing characters come to life, a world come to fruition, and a beautiful literary legacy, even if it never goes beyond your study (room, My Documents folder, etc.), unfold, is something to behold. Again it is so with poetry, though one may dare turn it into a calculation-game,  it unravels the eternal, divinely established beauty of the imagination, and tears away the barriers of ordinary life.

That is why I write, and that’s my hidden talent.
