|Frederick the Literate by Charles Wysocki|
Ars Scribendi. Perhaps only a Latinist or classics major would recognize and appreciate these words as 'The Art of Writing,' but, id est (it is) a writer's art. Most writers pen their 'Pulitzer' works in vivid color at odd hours sacred to their work, while the rest of the world dreams away, unconsciously, in black and white. The linguist's lair is a treasure trove full of well-worn words that sparkle and shine when polished; once again ready and waiting to be written into a new genre. Whether the work is an epic, short story, poetry or prose, the power of the pen is what a great writer knows.
