Closing Thought–13Mar20

I just would like to pass on a few thoughts on writing.

I write all the time, everyday……between taking notes and writing in IST most of my time is spent doing what I enjoy…..first is what I think when I read some blogs/posts…..that’s not writing, it is typing.

These are a few thoughts that one should consider before they attempt to write…..

“The heart and soul of good writing is research; you should write not what you know but what you can find out about”. Robert J. Sawyer

“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” Benjamin Franklin

You are always seeing those “how to” blog post on the proper way to write…..well there are 3 rules to writing whether blog or book….

“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.” W. Somerset Maugham

“Good sense is both the first principal and the parent source of good writing.” Horace

“If the writing is honest it cannot be separated from the man who wrote it.” Tennessee Williams

“Writing is good, thinking is better. Cleverness is good, patience is better.  Hermann Hesse
 
“Writing is a calling, not a choice.”  Isabel Allende
 
“Most so-called writers keep writing and writing with the hope, some day, to find something to say.”   Nassim Nicholas Taleb

This is my favorite quote about writing…..I do not know who said it but it is very true to me.

“Writing takes an act of love or it is just scribbling”?  (There is lots of scribbling out there)

I Read I Write, You Know

“lego ergo scribo”
