Where I Should Be

(via litreactor)

“Ah, but I love to draw beautiful words, like trumpets of light…I adore you, words who are sensitive to our sufferings, words in red and lemon yellow, words in the steel-blue colour of certain insects, words with the scent of vibrant skills, subtle words of fragrant roses and seaweed, prickly words of sky-blue wasps. words with powerful snouts, words of spotless ermine, words spat out by the sands of the sea, words greener than Cyrene fleece, discreet words whispered by fishes in the pink ears of shells, bitter words, tornado and storm-tossed words, being beaten, evil words, festive words, tornado and storm-tossed words, windy words, reedy words, the wise words of children, rainy, tearful words, words without rhyme or reason, I love you! I love you!”

—   James Ensor, belgian printmaker and painter on language. (via beingblog)

Neil Gaiman: Reposted as something that can be reblogged. ON WRITER'S BLOCK.

neil-gaiman:

I’ve seem to be hitting writer’s block far too often now. My grade in my creative writing class is suffering because i don’t turn in anything because i’m never really satisfied with anything i do. all my good ideas seem to turn into bad ones once i write it down. How do you get pass writers…

Whoa. The MLA has officially devised a standard format to cite tweets in an academic paper. Sign of the times.

I mean, finally, right? Twitter is nothing if not academic.

This question came in:
juandepareja asked you:
Do ever go through phases where you’re too tired/listless/depressed to write anymore? If so, what do you do to get through it?



So I thought I would put up a motivational poster, for you, Juan, and for anyone else who needs it. (Original photo by Holly Gaiman at the Hay Literary Festival.)
