Tuesday Tidbits #15



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!


Writing is about connection not content. You can read about someone’s struggles that, by genetics, gender, or grace of good luck, you could never possibly have, and still sense their suffrage. That is connection, not content.



We should be careful in the titles we choose for ourselves. I agree that if you write, regardless of what you write, you are a ‘writer’. But the term ‘author’ should be reserved for those with published works. It is an earned delineation.



If writing is a gift, then ask for a gift receipt. Eventually you will want to return something.



I put great effort and thought into the words I write, but so little into the words I speak. It may well explain the reason I can never get the taste of foot out of my mouth.



Flowery words, rampant adjectives, and ethereal allusions are the wrapping paper and bow to the words we write. They make it look so pretty. But the reader is hoping that when our words are unwrapped, there is a real gift inside.



Poems are the flowers dotting the fields of the written word. Like bees we stop to chance the beauty of each, and the feelings they hold stick to us like pollen. Each flower holds enough for every bee to share and their pollen feeds our lives with honey.



Writing is not about finding different words. It is about making a difference with your words.




Now get out there and write something!

      Thank you, Kaylen! You are too kind. This started as a limited series and it was actually nearing its natural end, but all the kind comments has made me work harder to continue the series as long as I can.

    “I put great effort and thought into the words I write, but so little into the words I speak. It may well explain the reason I can never get the taste of foot out of my mouth.”

    I sound like a broken record, but this may be your best collection of quotes. And I agree with the foot in mouth syndrome; with writing we usually have a chance to spend some time crafting what we want to say; when we speak, it is often spur of the moment.

    And your last one is perfect – I think that’s what we all want to do with our words, and our life – make a difference…
