Tomorrow’s Classics

On writing, my advice is the same to all. If you want to be a writer, write. Write and write and write. If you stop, start again. Save everything that you write. If you feel blocked, write through it until you feel your creative juices flowing again. Write. Writing is what makes a writer, nothing more and nothing less. — Ignore critics. Critics are a dime a dozen. Anybody can be a critic. Writers are priceless. — Go where the pleasure is in your writing. Go where the pain is. Write the book you would like to read. Write the book you have been trying to find but have not found. But write. And remember, there are no rules for our profession. Ignore rules. Ignore what I say here if it doesn’t help you. Do it your own way. — Every writer knows fear and discouragement. Just write. — The world is crying for new writing. It is crying for fresh and original voices and new characters and new stories. If you won’t write the classics of tomorrow, well, we will not have any. Good luck.

    1. I am still deliberating if I will make a poem of the highlighted words and title it found poetry citing the source or including it at the bottom because the highlighted words are the short version and the gist of the quote and the rest is optional.

      1. writing in a sunlit room that overlooks a garden and some body of water, mountains frame my neighborhood and I have kind neighbors over for tea or bbqs. I am surrounded by loving, supportive people who leave me alone to write but are eager to read the next chapter 🙂 Enough money to live without a corporate job and to travel extensively. What do you want?

      2. Remember I had an Edwardian country house which we sold early this year? That was ideal. Till they build a new subdivision next to my backyard. That did it for me. They seem to be building on every available space nowadays. There was a very beautiful arts and crafts white villa here on the suburb. They tore it down and build a rotonda. If I could, I would make it a personal quest to save period houses. That’s history, that is art. That is something you can never re create or build. Stupid people.

      3. You’re right about that. Period houses should be preserved by people who love them for others to enjoy. Though they are expensive to keep up I’ve heard.
