Has it ever felt like writing was its own type of performance piece? It's an exercise in cadence and the exact placement of dramatic pauses. The projection of oneself as a character, eliciting empathy, and silently establishing tone. It's a footwork. It's a muscle. It requires practice and mentorship. It can be evaluated as well or poorly executed. Sadly it doesn't burn any calories.
Currently working on an essay on The Joy of Missing Out.
