What Scott said.

Piet Mondrian, Gray Tree
In a workshop I took with Scott Russell Sanders some years ago, he said literature is not a game anyone can figure out how to play. What we seek in writing is that moment when the reader looks up from his text and thinks something he never thought before.  Or the moment we encounter someone on the street and we see them differently because of something we read.

This is a worthwhile undertaking.
