Checking in to say I've been out of town for a few days, hence the crickets from my neck of the Interwebs. Also wanted to impart a little inspiration ...
I believe, as all writers probably do, that words are kinetic. They have energy in them because they are moving. A word isn't stagnant. It doesn't wait on a page to do something, but is set in motion by a writer.
Here are some moving words, and I hope they lift you up and set you free this weekend.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. ~ Ben Franklin
Write only if you cannot live without writing. Write only what you alone can write. ~ Elie Wiesel
To be the kind of writer you want to be, you must first be the kind of thinker you want to be. ~ Ayn Rand
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. ~ Scott Adams
Drama, instead of telling us the whole of a man's life, must place him in such a situation, tie such a knot, that when it is untied, the whole man is visible. ~ Tolstoy
One must be drenched in words, literally soaked in them, to have the right ones form themselves into the proper pattern at the right moment. ~ Hart Crane
