Good Writing

I so admire Barbara Kingsolver. Her non-fiction books are like musical scores – there’s a lovely rhythm that permeates her essays. I haven’t read any of her six fiction books, but I’m sure they’re just as amazing.

Here’s how she defines good writing: “What makes writing good? That’s easy: the lyrical description, the arresting metaphor, the dialogue that falls so true on the ear it breaks the heart, the plot that winds up exactly where it should.”

Well if that’s the recipe for good writing, it looks like I still have to find the right ingredients.
