Tuesday Tidbits #54


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!


There is little power in great beliefs and great power in a little doing.

You cannot explain skydiving to someone who has never seen a plane. To connect with readers emotionally, we must start at a very basic place in the subject of our work. A common ground, which is then a reference point to the reader. From there, you can take them to the things yet unseen.

Writing does not lend itself to multi-tasking. To verbalize and articulate thought is a focused principle. The amount of mental work involved becomes elongated by distraction.

Knowing a lot of words does not make you a writer any more than knowing a lot of colors makes you a painter. If there can be art found in but black and white, then it can be found in just a few words.

Publishing something is like lifting the veil of your mail-order bride. Your anxious to see what you just married yourself to.

I am a firm believer in women’s equality. I had some great role models in my life of strong, independent, and courageous women. But as the pendulum of misogynistic thought swings harshly in correction, please do not think I want to kneel at a throne any more than you want to kneel at one.

Writers are naturally attached to our words. They are our progeny. They are a little bit of ourselves left behind to prove we existed.


Now get out there and write something!

    Brilliant tid-bits today, well, as always. It is quite an interesting series and yes, it does not take too many words or too many colours to create something meaningful that can reach and conquer the hearts and minds of others. Great job my friend!

    These are very profound this week! Some great advice, though!

    loved the mail-order bride analogy. and I agree that it is nearly impossible to do anything else while writing; I can’t even listen to music…

    another great set of tidbits!

    Love it Brad. All well said my friend.

    “Writers are naturally attached to our words. They are our progeny. They are a little bit of ourselves left behind to prove we existed.”

    This is just so entirely true. You penned it absolutely. Have a blessed and inspiring day my dear friend. Love ya Jonikens
