The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.
— Gustave Flaubert
Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.
— Isaac Asimov
I have always let my fingers to the talking but this really sheds an awesome light on writing.
“Eureka! You’ve just finished your first book and are now thinking, “How do I get published?” After months of blood, sweat, and tears, you go online and begin investigating. Sadly, after researching a slew of websites, not only are you utterly confused, but also feeling as if you’re at step one all over again. Some experts say you should self publish. Others suggest that you find a company to push your book. They warn about shady agents, introductory no-no’s, and coordinating the perfect pitch letter. With so much information out there, who should you trust? Well, its times like these when the only thing to do is go directly to the source. Luckily, I’ve had the privilege of speaking with an experienced author in order to find out how a new writer can best get published.”
This blog is from a friend of mine in chicago. He is an aspiring author and has written his first book. I look forward to reading it. Nonetheless, he has a blog filled with thoughts, ideas and advice for new, aspiring and independent authors out there. If you ever thought of being an author yourself give his site and blog a chance and you will be inspired, while also getting the information you will need to keep going on the road you have chosen as a writter.
My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.
— Anais Nin
I love being a writer. What I can’t stand is the paperwork.
I do not consider myself a writer but I do love to write. I thought that this quotes was awesome because though I may love to write, I cannot stand the paperwork that comes with it. When all is said and done, however, it is a worthwhile process.
To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it’s about, but the inner music the words make.
I am learning this as I write more and more for Ekhava. I am usually a stickler for vocab and grammar, even though I miss the mark at times in those department, yet I still try. However, I am leaning that vocab and grammar are good for academics but do not really convey the essence of a thought and/or idea, well at least in my opinion. Truth does not need to be eloquent to reach its mark, it just needs to be said. Once said and/or written, one can look upon it and either elaborate or simplify it so that even a six-year-old can understand it.
I love this quote because I am seeing how writing is like composing a symphony. 🙂
A writer is somebody for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.
– THOMAS MANN
That is so true. Coming up with something to write tends to be pretty hard. However, I believe that, though hard, I enjoy the process because when it flows it flows.
