X-Ray: Ray that can penetrate solid matter. Photograph, treat, or examine. (Webster’s Mini Dictionary)


As writers, I think in some way, this is what we try to do

We want to penetrate the heart of the reader

Sometimes we try to get to our own heart

We photograph our characters with words

We treat…

We examine…

and with any luck

our characters

become the ray

that gets through the chaos to the heart of everything that matters
