Write the heaviest that can be written


Just wanting to add something to what Adam David said in a “conversation” with Miguel Syjuco: that “writers should make claims”; that writers should “assume the right to make others think.”

Because Janine and I were “conversing” at Facebook and she said “Ang bigat naman!” referring to something that has been said in the conversation.  This, I think, should be added to what a writer should be, or do: the writer must always venture to say something heavy, something big, something significant, something that will alter perceptions, like drugs, something that will challenge beliefs. If not: why write?
