What follows is a Writing Rant. To play on words, not really a pun, it could be called a Righting Rant. This is a person, it could be any of us, who has decided to take back personal control of life and resubscribe to cherished values which had become a bit compromised.

For any of my students tuning in, have you noted that while this is from a one person to another, the “other” could be any trusted person. A dysfunctional parent, an unthinking sibling, a valued family member who unaccountably no longer communicates, a BFF who has morphed into a frenemy.

And this leads us to the reader response theory in literature. We do not have to focus on the writer and measure greatness according to some standard delivered to us by distant, reclusive academics. Instead, look at the impact of the writing on its personal impact to you.

This writing led me to think and make connections personal to me. That is why I think it is great.

And that is my Rant.
