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!
