Tuesday Tidbits #30

 

 

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!

 

 

If you write openly and honestly, your work can often be personally prophetic. When we recognize the things we hold dear, we can also discern our direction.


 

 

Publishing your work is a double-edged sword. On one side, there is the sense of creative accomplishment. And on the other, an opportunity to be judged. It cuts both ways, but that balance is necessary and serves a purpose.


 

 

Writing about pain and suffering has its limits. The human soul can only suffer so much before it shuts down out of self-preservation. But love, oh wonderful love, it is limitless in words and infinitely a joy to the human soul.


 

 

Poetry does not have to be linear. It can spiral, wane and wax, and move tangentially. It moves in the same way as nature.


 

 

The time we spend not writing is just as important as the time that we do. It is within those moments that our thoughts are bound in words. And when the time is right, we spill them out onto paper.


 

 

If you start a series of your writing, make sure you are comfortable with it. A great response can push it well beyond the amount of writing you thought it would take. Such is the bane of success.


 

 

There is no subject that a writer cannot write about. There are some subjects that some writers wonโ€™t write about, but it is not because they canโ€™t, it is simply by choice. Choice is the greatest of freedoms, but we must recognize when it is a harbor from fear rather than an expression of freedom.


 

 

Now get out there and write something!

    ah, the double-edged sword of publishing! luckily blogging feels less risky and not often met with negativity.

  3. You’re right. There’s nothing that we can’t write about. It’s all about the choice. Beautifully written

    is the quote about starting a series of writing coming from personal experience? ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Brad, these tidbits are out of this world today! Great advise, great thoughts and yes, so true, writers can write about anything, it’s a matter of choice. Writers are those who are well capable of analysing and understanding many of the situations that become “news” in our societies, then who better to examine and expound upon such themes? Writers are the more educated and prepared among the society…of course there are many more much more prepared to make more money…and therefore have a duty, sometimes, to write and to create public opinion. This idea is not new, it comes from Ancient Greece, when they decreed that one of the fundamentals of democracy was an educated person, capable of discussing before the people issues of great importance. Thank you for such a great post, my friend, and all the best,
    Francisco
