My favorite type of writing subverts my expectations. It takes a twist that’s completely unexpected, yet so TRUE.

Here’s an example that shows what I mean:

    Very sweet, very clever and very unexpected! Nice, emotional way to start the day. Thank you for sharing Robyn!

    Since you asked, I love reading about artists and their experiences and processes. Currently reading Alan Arkin’s “An Improvised Life” – his relentless exploration of truth in himself and on stage is inspirational and a reminder how close society is related to ethics/arts. If
    we as individuals can work toward our own personal truth and expression, it will affect society positively. Your work has done/is doing that Robyn!

  2. Robyn Says:

    Thanks, Moneen. And that Alan Arkin book sounds fab — I’ll check it out.

    Oh my gosh!!!! WOW!!!! Okay, I know exactly what you mean, and I agree – this is my favorite kind of story telling, too!

    I am a freelance writer this is my favortie type of writing too. I loved Alfred Hitchcock and Twilight Zone for the times when I, “didn’t see that coming”. I like mysteries for the same reason. That was a great example. I also love the enconomy of words. When emotions, humor, etc., is captured in a short space of words or pictures. You certainly did that here.

    Sincerly, Peter
