Truly great writers cultivate Open Mindedness. They cultivate open minds because with the state-of-mind the writer continues to improve their craft and expand on their body of work.
The Open-Minded writer contributes and receives new thoughts leading to brilliant story lines. The story lines have twists and turns that their readers enjoy.
During character development each new personality offices a learning experience for the character, the reader and the writer.
