Writers on Writing

A brand new book (published a few minutes ago!)

Writers on Writing: Thoughts on the Writing Journey

“What(ever) you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”

– Johann von Goethe, German poet, novelist, playwright

“Be bold and unseen forces come to one’s aid.”

Love that one (perhaps the story of my ‘little’ life, sorry, m)!

from http://www.thecreativewritingcourse.wordpress.com

Incidentally, the paperback (of this “quick/rough  first draft”) has also just been published by Amazon (Createspace) and I’ve ordered a proof copy, so that I can more easily edit out the repetitions.

Anyway, enjoy  and happy writing…

PS

“I truly believe we can ALL create and enthuse magic into ‘so-called humdrum little lives’. You don’t just have to be the choreographer, or the conductor of your life script – rather paint your life as the masterpiece it could (one day) be. There is a rich tapestry of talent in every human soul, that flows through the spirit of God. So don’t spend your days stringing and tuning your instrument; start making and playing your unique tunes of music right now.”
