A daily commitment to writing seems to be doing me a lot of good. I’ve spent almost 5 hours on writing and writing related things (editing mostly but some research) over the last two days. And maybe something will come of it, maybe it won’t.
I just read an interesting quote about writing from Ray Bradbury and I wanted to share it here so I can remember it and find it again when I want it.
“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 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.”
