Not everyone see writing as a form of art, but it is. In its simplest definition, art is 'the conscious use of skill and creative imagination...' Well, that's exactly what we Authors do.
The painter uses a paintbrush and some paint, and with his/her skill and creativity paints the subject's world on canvas.
The sculptor uses clay (or other material) and turns it into something beautiful by molding it with his/her hands using that skill and creativity.
A musician who writes his/her own music uses their knowledge and creates a great piece.
And we authors take our knowledge and tap into our vast creative minds to give birth to our wonderful stories.
We are artists also :) Have a great Monday

I agree. Writers are artists. It takes a lot of creative energy and imagination to paint a picture with words.
Today I'm blogging about brainstorming to get ideas for writing. Please drop by and say "hi."
Thanks for stopping by Suzanne. I'm heading over to drop by :)Delete
While I don't think I have ever met someone that thinks writers are not artists, I have met people that think that video games aren't art.ReplyDelete
Writers 100% are artists.
But that being said, I think video games require a lot of art too (including writers, visual effects artists, painters, drawers, sketch artists, concept developers).
It's all artistic in it's own way.
And writing is my all-time favorite art, but I definitely appreciate all the other ones :)
Unfortunately, I've had a couple of people say that writers weren't artists. Turns out they were pretty narrow minded though.Delete
Video games take a lot of creativity.
Absolutely we are artists. I don't know why anyone would try to argue that we aren't :-)ReplyDelete
I actually see writing as an art. The words that tell a story are quite artistic. Not everyone can tell a story. To me, that confirms its artist value. I would rather read a book instead of looking a glob of paint called art. I mean, I love paintings but all paintings are not art to me. Creative minds create art! Great post!ReplyDelete
