Isaac Bashevis Singer - Good Writer Quote - Writing Quote

Isaac Bashevis Singer (Icek Hersz Zynger in Polish) was a Jewish writer born in Poland who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1978. He wrote and published only in Yiddish. His writing has been described as a “unique blend of religious morality and social awareness combined with an investigation of personal desires.”

He shared his thoughts on what being a good writer means.  In his words:

A good writer is basically a story teller,

not a scholar or a redeemer of mankind.

— Isaac Bashevis Singer

Not all writing is story telling, but maybe this is one way to look at good writing.

Have an awesome weekend!
