I Dream A World

A Writer's Dream(s)

I dream a world where man
No other man will scorn,
Where love will bless the earth
And peace its paths adorn
I dream a world where all
Will know sweet freedom’s way,
Where greed no longer saps the soul
Nor avarice blights our day.
A world I dream where black or white,
Whatever race you be,
Will share the bounties of the earth
And every man is free,
Where wretchedness will hang its head
And joy, like a pearl,
Attends the needs of all mankind-
Of such I dream, my world!

– American poet, Langston Hughes

“Look across all sport and observe the truly great. All had this zest for combat, this taste for being truly tested. All wished to explore (and even expand*) the limits of their own possibilities…”

“You think you have a limit. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.”

“I know when a writer’s in trouble….when he/she resorts to writing about writing.”

– novelist Guy Ableman to his agent Doesn’t sound very exciting (or promising for me) then… does it!

from https://thecreativewritingcourse.wordpress.com/category/books-by-craig-lock/

“A writer’s really deep in the  smelly brown stuff when they desperately resort to running creative writing courses!”

“The characters seem to represent the virtues and the resilience of the ‘little’ people, a story (or stories) to which we can all relate. In essence it’s about hope, faith and love: a tale (and tales) of the unquenchable spirit of tenacity in battling on, no matter what are our circumstances.
