Musings A to Z Challenge: D

Challenge:  Write a short entry (100 words or less) on a topic beginning with the sequential letter of the alphabet.



To diverge is to tend toward a different direction, to separate, or to become different.  For me, it means to go against the flow of the average, normal, or expected.  Whether in life or in writing, being divergent is an important characteristic that allows uniqueness to shine through:  To look at things from a different angle, to perceive experiences through eyes that look for the unexpected, the unusual, or the anomalies; this gives the divergent a strength and tenacity that cannot be achieved by taking the path more travelled, or the way smoothed by myriads of feet trodding before them.
