On Writing – a quote to get me through 2014

“Let’s get one thing clear right now, shall we? There is no Idea Dump, no Story Central, no Island of the Buried Best Sellers; good story ideas seem to come quite literally from nowhere, sailing at you right out of the empty sky: two previously unrelated ideas come together and make something new under the sun. Your job isn’t to fund these ideas but to recognize them when they show up.” — Stephen King On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft 

Thanks to Amanda DiPasquale for recommending Stephen King’s memoir to me, and to my cousin Amanda Rose for telling me to read my old notebooks — it’s nice to see how far I’ve come. I’m vowing to write more in 2014, more stories, more poems, less daily documenting.

Talk soon,
