As they say, that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder so does the reader’s mind. Writing requires both the mental and physical energy of the writer to put forward the story they wish their readers to come across. To be an author, one must put out a story so that it keeps the readers engaged and interested in the story. Every other author has their genre of storyline. Where one author writes about horror, there may be another who writes about romance.
