U is for Universal Truths

U is for Universal Truths.


of, pertaining to, or characteristic of all or the whole: universal experience.

"The forces which move the cosmos are -no different from those which move the human soul."  ~ Lama Anagarika Govinda
    William Faulkner once said, "the best literature is about the old universal truths, such as love, honor, pride, compassion and sacrifice".  
I am of the firm belief, that if you write about universal truths, you will find a limitless audience with the world.  It will not matter that your character is black and the audience is white.  It will not matter if your character is rich, when much of the public is not.   Nor will it matter how farfetched your story be, if that story and its characters live in a world of universal truths.
Type at ya later, A to Zers.

  1. I try to start a story by asking myself what I care strongly enough about to write on.
