"Stranglers and Wranglers" - An Inspirational Story for Saturday, June 8th

Stranglers and Wranglers

Many years ago there was a group of brilliant young men at the University of Wisconsin. The group of men seemed to have amazing creative literary talent and were extraordinary in their ability to put their literary skills to their best use. These promising young men met regularly to read and critique each other’s literary works.

These men were merciless while they criticized one another. They dissected the most minute of the expressions and offered tough and even mean criticism to each other’s work. Their meeting sessions became arenas of literary criticism and the members of this exclusive club called themselves the “Stranglers.”

Not to be excluded from the opportunity to level up their literary skills, the women of literary interest at the university started a club of their own, one comparable to the Stranglers. The members called themselves the “Wranglers.” The members of the club too presented their literary pieces in front of each another. But the feedback from the members was much softer, more positive and more encouraging. Every effort from a member, even the most feeble one, was encouraged by all.

After twenty years, a university alumnus was doing a study of his classmates’ careers when he noticed a huge difference in the literary accomplishments of the Stranglers and the Wranglers.

Among all the brilliant young men in the Stranglers, none had made any significant literary achievement. But the Wranglers had several successful writers and some renowned national literary talents.

The talent and education between the two groups were almost the same. The Stranglers strangled each other while the Wranglers gave each other a lift. The Stranglers created an atmosphere of contention and self-doubt while the Wranglers brought out the best in each other.

First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I'd like
to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself
and clear your mind before writing. I've had a tough time clearing my mind
in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
Cheers!
