The process never fails to amaze the writer, as each writing is different from the last, and depending on the emotional state of the author, at the time of the writing, the words either flow out effortlessly or struggle and jam. And all of this happens in silence, except for the tap, tap, tapping of the keys.
Writing is a lonely calling, a very different vocation from most, for its final product is derived from the interpreted chronicles born in the writer's mind, and then sent out to be read and criticized, both favorably or unfavorably, by numerous unknown readers. While the writing is being dissected, the author waits alone, filled with feelings of both anticipation and dread, daring to dream that maybe this one time this will be the one that makes it big.
And while still remembering the sting of the depression that accompanies a letter of rejection, the lonely process will begin all over again....one writer, silent thoughts, and only the sounds of tap, tap, tap.
