"i must write it all out, at any cost. writing is thinking. it is more than living, for it is being concious of living." -anne morrow lindbergh

"writing has so much to give, so much to teach, so many surprises. that thing you had to force yourself to do--the actual act of writing--turns out to be the best part. it's like discovering that while you thought you needed the tea ceremony for the caffeine, what you really needed was the tea ceremony." -anne lamott

"we should write because writing brings clarity and passion to the act of living. writing is sensual, experiential, grounding. we should write because writing is good for the soul. we should write because writing yields us a body of work, a felt path through the world we live in." -julia cameron

"so long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters." -virginia woolf



this i believe.

"...ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn question with a strong, simple "I must," then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your while life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse." - Rainer Maria Rilke

Your handwriting is beautiful. I find writing very therapeutic and I love seeing handwritten things by other people. It can be so much easier to write things down than express them orally.

Very perceptive woman, that Virginia Woolf: there really is no point in writing if it's not what you wish to write. Everyone needs reminding of that every now and then.

"Anyway, the force from somewhere in Space which commands you to write in the first place, gives you no choice. You take up the pen when you are told, and write what is commanded. There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you." --Zora Neale Hurston
