Writers and Problems

image via awfullybigblogadventure.blogspot.com


A writer doesn't solve problems. He allows them to emerge. 
~ Friedrich Dürrenmatt ~


I really like this quote, about a sensibility you learn in writing classes, but I think it tells only half the story. Not ony must the problem emerge, but it must ensnare charcters, maybe change the world they live in to a degree.


It's all about the characters, you see.
