As an author, you must always write your own way, but you must also arouse the mercy of your readers in order to create evergreen True Art.
When you are able to evoke mercy with your words, you are opening up the realm of human connection where no tether was before crafted or in evidence.
Forging that tie between reader and character on the page is how True Art unites us and protects us from the syndrome of the immediate me.
Mercy is a precious commodity because it can only be offered and not forced or willed and while mercy can be rejected, its existence is always pure and healing.
The difference between grace and mercy is one of sovereignty. Mercy rules everlasting memory while grace tends the transient body.
You arouse the mercy of your readers by example and expression.
Sometimes the realities you draw with sentences and form with grammar repulse the body and pollute the mind — but those risks are the inherent merits of a giving and a merciful readership — and, as the creator, you must embrace the danger and make peace with that conflict of the human spirit.
