Tuesday Tidbits #61


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!

The visual artist portrays images in an effort to provoke words.  The writer portrays words in an effort to provoke images.

Having a composition completely misunderstood in context and meaning does not hurt my feelings in any way. Who am I to say what my words may look like from the other side of the coin?

I think forms and styles with abbreviated line lengths are a true test. When the room for flowery adjectives and verbose grandeur is removed, the only thing left is true eloquence.

Certainly, I want my words to sing the lead, but the flow, form, and rhythm should dance lack back-up singers.

The greatest compliment for me is when a reader singles out a phrase or line from any work to give it praise. Knowing what truly connected with someone brings a sense of kindred spirits.

Absolutely, creative writing is cathartic. There is no way to spend that much time in your own head and not kick over a few stones.

The two greatest muses to poetry are love and death. I just hope they come in that order.


Now get out there and write something!

    Well done, Brad. I like the comparison of the visual artist and the writer – clever play on words.

    And that’s good to know about being misunderstood. Sometimes I read things that I’m not quite sure what the author is trying to say, but I still take a shot at it 🙂

    One of the things I like best about your site is sometimes you make me think about something I’ve never thought about before. The observation about the visual artist and the writer is trying to achieve is brilliant.
