There is this site: advicetowriters.com and it’s full of wonderful and useful comments on writing. I found this one the other day and couldn’t help not post it. It’s too beautiful.
To sum it all up, if you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling.
You must write every single day of your life.
You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next.
You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads.
I wish for you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime.
I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you.
May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories—science fiction or otherwise.
Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.
I love literature, what can I say… and I hope I can be the sublime fool my novel needs.
Keep your fingers crossed for my November. I’m participating in NaNoWriMo.
On that, more information here.
And it would also mean a lot to me if you checked this other page of mine. Because I paint t-shirts and bags and all kinds of stuff and if you’d like one, just leave me a comment. –> The Beautiful Ones Productions
