The Highest Praise A Writer Can Receive
I like to write. I think I’m good at it. But my writing is of the essay / non-fiction genre. Still, I love the written word and am deeply appreciative of really good writers, both fiction and non-fiction. (I’d like to be able to write fiction, but as Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry character said: “A man’s got to know his limitations.”)
Truly engrossing fiction, however, transports me to other places to the point that my wife essentially has to whack me with a stick to get my attention.
John Ross wrote a novel that is popular among the gun culture that I found informative, thought-provoking, and entertaining entitled Unintended Consequences. In an interview he was asked: “What has been your proudest moment as a writer?”. Go read it.
I cannot imagine greater praise.
