Tuesday Tidbits #5



Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!



“In a world of two-hundred and eighty characters, punctuation is at a premium, I get it. I was desperate to hear about your new sweater, delicious breakfast, or other trivial minutia of your life in vivid detail. So, why can’t you write a business letter?”



“Even on days when writing does not come easily, there are still plenty of words in my head. The struggle is never what I want to say, it is not knowing how to say it.”



“I have yet to meet a writer who doesn’t also love music. Certainly, we feel a lyrical connection, if nothing else. We sit in amazement as the addition of mere heptatonic scale elevate words to places that the writer only dreams of. Even played alone, a few well-played notes can give rise to emotion.”



“Writing awards are great for marketing. I’ll take as many as you have. But the meat and potatoes of writing for me is, literally, money for meat and potatoes. Poor and starving artist is not just a stereotype.”



“In the space constraints of a Tweet you could easily write five haiku. Art and creativity lie dead on the battlefield of social gratification.”



“I do prefer my own reading be a bit like shock therapy. I want the words to slap me around a bit, if you know what I mean. If I wanted to go to sleep, I would read my own stuff.”



“Sometimes my writing is so bad, I want to scratch my eyes out. Somehow, my hands and brain have conspired and managed to deflect my frustration towards the only innocents in all this.”




Now get out there and write something!

    I think music and writing go together because they are both creative outlets for artists. And if you are looking for some writing to put you to sleep, let me recommend any accounting textbook…
