« "...throw their laughter into toil." |

"I’m a deeply flawed human who is constantly trying to evolve and make my way through life."
My writer friend Ryan Bradley has a thoughtful interview
up at Fictonaut.
People wouldn’t still be reading books if they didn’t enjoy them. And like it or not that base enjoyment isn’t a product of some deep analysis or high-minded relationship with humanity and the universe. No, it’s much more primal. Enjoying something that has “artistic merit” doesn’t make it any less a form of entertainment, it just means you’re attracted to different aesthetics than the people you think have “low-brow” tastes. We’re all seeking entertainment.
Sounds like he struggles with the same highs and lows about the worth of his writing that I do.
