Writing isn't about how well you can write the next "Great American Novel" using impeccable grammar and haughty punctuation; Sometimes it's just about making someone smile or laugh out loud. Sometimes it's about sharing a funny thought or writing down a vivid life experience so others can share a great moment that made an impression on you, the writer.—t.hammond
some of the mostliving writingIn the United States, it's written on bathroom walls. The men's room in the train station in Albany, New York, for example, should be preserved as a national treasure: it has more wit than any Broadway hit!—truman capote
Exceptional mental discipline is needed to convey the human experience without perversion. Telling the truth is unnatural. Lying is an important aspect of humanity. We lie to other people to avoid feeling hurt, and we lie to ourselves to protect our noble sense of being a good person. Dishonesty and inaccuracy keep our pursuit of personal pleasure uninterrupted. I will avoid the pursuit of pleasure and cultivate the precision of mind and moral character that the precious search for truth requires. Reading and writing, together with observing nature and diligently reflecting on personal experiences, are the methodology of the process that will bring me closer to discovering the inviolable truth of existence and becoming a dean of all truth, beauty and goodness. blameless of the world.—Kilroy J. Oldster
In England if something goes wrong—Alfred North Whitehead
Let's say when you find a skunk in the garden
write to the family lawyer who takes the appropriate measures; while in the United States you call the fire department. Each satisfies a characteristic need; in English love for legalistic order and procedure; And here in America they like something bright and red and fast.
Given my sometimes forceful and lewd vocabulary and very vivid imagination, I wonder if I should be writing "other" types of content.—April Mae Monterrosa
Do you know why teachers use me? Because I speak in tongues. I write metaphors. Each of my stories is a metaphor for you to remember. The great religions are all metaphors. We appreciate things like Daniel and the lions' den and the Tower of Babel. People remember these metaphors because they are so vivid that you can't get rid of them, and that's what kids like at school. They read about rockets and space encounters, stories about dinosaurs. All my life I have walked the fields and picked up shiny objects. I turn one over and say: Yes, there is a story. And that's what kids like. Today my stories are in thousands of anthologies. And I'm in good company. The other authors are often dead people writing in metaphors: Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville, Washington Irving, Nathaniel Hawthorne. All these people wrote for children. They may have pretended not to, but they did.—ray bradbury
In a letter [to Goethe, December 17, 1795], Schiller writes of a "poetic mood." I think I know what you mean, I think I know it myself. It is the mood of receptiveness to nature in which one's thoughts seem as alive as nature itself.—Luis Wittgenstein
Art translates human souls. The public display of sophisticated hieroglyphics from each era yields a unique image of the rudimentary art of survival. Humanity cannot exist without the improvised paradigm of innovative art, whose real amoeba expresses elusive and unspeakable thoughts. The gallery of artistic impressions of humanity ranges from the sobriety of personified cave drawings to the free vocabulary of modern art. The collection of layered stories across the centuries showcases the vibrant palette of enigmatic lives shaped by humanity's self-imposed sense of urgency. The overflowing tropical offerings of each generation blend their collective representations seamlessly with the glowing panorama of the cosmos, the shimmering nightscape that harbors the intangible life force of every soul in the community.—Kilroy J. Oldster
Who sets the bar for what you call accessibility? The definition of "accessible" is "easy to understand," and a lot of the fiction I love is just... not that. It's complex, rich, and sometimes bewildering, and it sticks with me precisely because I can't fully understand it. Sometimes the language is superficially clear and accessible, sometimes the language is condensed to evoke strong feelings. Accessibility is such a strange and sad reference point for the writing I love. Dora the explorer is accessible. Broken heart is not. But I was never intentionally difficult, if that's what you mean. That has no appeal to me. I have always tried to write the fiction that intrigues me the most, I have to be passionate, committed and almost desperate to create something. When working with material that is conceptual or abstract or difficult in any way, I strive for clarity, transparency, and a lively approach.—am mark
Bright. [Lasdun] certainly strikes me as one of the most gifted, lively, and skilful poets writing in English today, and far better than many of the more famous. His abilities are solidly established; the promise of it is almost limitless.—antonio pike
"Maybe it reminds you of school," he suggests. "Hasn't someone described trenches as expressing ninety-nine percent boredom and one percent terror?" "I don't know about boredom. God, chaos, brutality. And he's so alive. I'd definitely be interested in reading his poetry, if only to see how he can go from describing people whose souls are being ripped out to writing about love." . "Maybe it's not that big of a jump," she says.
It adds a whole new dimension to war, you know, listening to someone who's in the middle of it. They really connected with it.'—pablo murray

Poetry is nothing more than the supreme eloquence of passion, the most vivid expression that can be given to our conception of anything, whether pleasant or painful, petty or dignified, pleasurable or disturbing. It's the perfect combination of the image and the words with the feeling we are having that we can't get rid of in any other way that gives the thought instant 'satisfaction'. This is the source of wit and fantasy, comedy and tragedy, the sublime and the pathetic.—william hazlitt
Not good. I've been trying to sleep for the last half hour, but I can't. Writing here is a kind of drug. It's the only thing I look forward to. This afternoon I read what I wrote... And it seemed alive to me. I know it looks alive because my imagination fills in all the parts that another human wouldn't understand. I mean it's vanity. But it seems to be some kind of magic... And I just can't live in this present. I'd go crazy if I did—John Fowles
I love words. I crave descriptions that overwhelm my imagination with vivid detail. I entertain myself with sentences that make my heart beat faster. I appreciate the expressions that cut through my feelings and make the tears flow. Essentially, I long for a writer's soul sealed in ink on the page.—Richelle E. Goodrich
Woolrich had a genius for creating types of stories that were perfectly suited to his world: the black cop story, the clock race story, the waking nightmare, the swing thriller, the neck story through the night, the story of the extermination, the story of the last hours. These situations and variations of them and similar situations are paradigms of our position in the world as Woolrich sees it. His mastery of suspense, his genius (like that of his godbrother Alfred Hitchcock) in keeping us on our toes and our breath, comes not only from the nightmarish situations he conjured up, but also from his compulsively readable, cinematically haunting, almost excited prose. to the point of hysteria, it forces us to get into the skin of the persecuted and condemned, where we live their torments and die a thousand little deaths with them.—Francisco M. Nevins Jr.
I think I'm a born writer because the things I imagine are more alive and vivid to me than the things I remember.—Ellen Glasgow
I've always had a great imagination when it comes to storytelling, but luckily I learned early on that imagination can be suppressed or enhanced through writing skills, what I call word work. From then on, my goal was to make sure my writing skills matched my imagination.—marvin brown
The cotton was open and spilled in the fields; the whole air smelled like it. As he passed field after field of crouching collectors, he seemed fixed amidst the steady tidal wave of bursting capsules, like heaps on the surf, while the long, partially filled sacks receded behind them in stiff, frozen plumes. The air was hot and alive and breathless.—Guillermo Faulkner
one last violent rally of doomed and dying summer.
I think my mistakes were quite common: I relied on clichés and adjectives instead of clear,living writing. But at least she could spell, which seems like a rarity these days.—cock sheep
And doesn't a writer do the same? Don't you weave scraps of dreams together? He searches for the most vivid details and links them into sequences that allow the reader to see, smell, and hear a world that seems complete in itself; She builds a stage and carefully hides all the props, wires, and nail holes, then stands back and hopes whoever wants to see believes it.—antonio doerr
I am not a writer. Ernest Hemingway was a writer. I just have a vivid imagination and I type 90 words per minute.—tiffany madison
"Olive Kitteridge" is a masterpiece: the writing style is so perfect that you don't even notice it; History is so alive that it's less like reading it and more like experiencing it firsthand.—melissa banco
This is how a writer writes many books. In each book he made several urgent and graphic points, many of which he sacrificed as the book's form became more solid.—annie dillard
What we learn from the vivid descriptions of travelers has a special charm; everything distant and suggestive stimulates our imagination; Such pleasures attract us far more than anything we can experience daily in the narrow circle of sedentary life.—Alexander of Humboldt
Sometimes a story so captures the imagination that it needs to be told. That's what I love about writing. Turn the pictures in your head into words, painting a vivid picture that takes you on a journey that is otherwise impossible.—SE Smith
Undoubtedly, The Blood of Heroes is the best report to date, offering much new insight and, at the same time, acting as a corrective, or at least an alternative point of view, to previous reports... Donovan combines this important combination of authoritative scholarship with theliving writingnecessary to refresh a story told so many times.—William C Davis
From my seat the fights are hard. I wrote my part. Sometimes I use the private, up close and personal perspective, letting the reader fall right in the middle of the carnage. This is lively and immersive, but inevitably chaotic, and it's easy to lose track of the battle as a whole. Sometimes I follow the general's point of view, looking down from above and seeing lines, flanks and reserves. This gives a good idea of the tactics and how the fight is won or lost, but it can easily become abstract.—George R. R. Martin
I think the reason the stories are so fast paced is because I like the stories. I like stories where things happen and there are surprises and unexpected twists along with lively characters and a memorable voice. So these are the stories I try to write. And it turns out that's the only type of writing that works for television. It is a medium that devours stories, demanding surprises and setbacks. So my sensibilities dovetail with storytelling on TV, at least the way we see it today.—Nick Antosca
The magic of writing is not so much in tapping into your imagination as in allowing the reader to tap into theirs. If I'm writing a novel, I'm not going to walk you through every scene. Avid readers tend to have very high IQs, so I'm always aware of that and respect it. I tend to give my readers vivid descriptions of sweeping vistas, gentle breezes, and late evening screeching against the coming night, and I present this step by step in an exciting way. Once I've got them on top of that invisible cliff, I push them off and say, Let's go from there.—carl henegan
A page from Addison or Irving will teach more about style than a whole rulebook, while a story from Poe will give the mind a more vivid idea of description and powerful and correct narration than ten dry chapters of a long textbook.—HP Lovecraft
While Helen Lowe writes beautiful stories, her work also uses poetry to address deeper questions about how we treat each other. With loving prose that brings her characters to life, she creates a universe of people we care about. This is an author with a gift for the imagination.—catalina asaro
Every once in a while I come across a travel book that is both insightful and entertaining.living writingand research replace excess and shoddy prose.—Arturo Smith

her to remember that she had existed.
A success story always offers its audience more than just a resolution of facts. A story offers a dramatic statement of human needs that are acted upon for their solution and fulfillment. Even if that purpose and fulfillment are obscure, the journey can still be vibrant, powerful, and enlightening.—Bill Johnson
Write about small, independent incidents that are still vivid in your memory. If you remember them, it is because they contain a greater truth than your readers will realize in their own lives. If you think small, you will end up finding the big themes in your family saga.—Guillermo Zinsser
FEARLESS is a vivid account of one man's journey from American boy to American hero. Blehm's writing takes you beyond the battlefield and into the personal battles, sacrifices, and triumphs of one of America's elite warriors. Anyone looking for an inspiring story about inner strength and courage will be amply rewarded with this book.—eric greitens
the thing it doesliving writingit is when the reader is in the body of the story, in the body of the character. Things smell like something; There is weather, there is texture, there is light.—janet fitch
Get people talking. Learn to ask questions that provide answers about what is most interesting or vibrant in their lives. Nothing enlivens writing like someone saying what they're thinking or doing, in their own words. Their own words will always be better than yours, even if you're the classiest stylist in the country.—Guillermo Zinsser
I had been a child most of my life when I began to write and my childhood memories were vivid and powerful and the forces that shaped me have mostly faded with time and every time I write something I give it away: let to have the shadow life of memory and fixes itself in letters: it ceases to be mine; loses the mobile unreliability of the Live.—rebecca solnit
Stout was a leader: quiet, selfless, humble, but very strong, very thoughtful, and remarkably innovative. Whether he spoke or wrote, he was short on words, precise, lively. You believed what he said; they wanted to do what he suggested. Neither—Roberto M Edsel
Sharing our personal stories makes us grateful to experience the glow of life. Writing our personal stories, documenting our vivid encounters with the larger world, and examining our own time-tested insights all shape the notion of our own selves.—Kilroy J. Oldster
The concept of a writer writing a vivid and precise scene in transparent, undecorated language so that we can see through the object without being distracted by the author is subject to the same contradiction as the concept of a painter writing a vivid and precise scene. with transparent pigments and transparent paints without color, including black and white, so that color does not come between us and the image.—Samuel R. Delany
Go to your desk on Monday morning and write about an event that is still vivid in your memory. It doesn't have to be long, three pages, five pages, but it should have a beginning and an end. Save this episode in a folder and get on with your life. Do the same on Tuesday morning. Tuesday's episode does not have to be related to Monday's episode. Take the memory that calls you; After your subconscious goes to work, it will begin to reveal your past. Keep this for two months, three months, or six months. Don't be impatient to start writing your "memoirs," the ones you had in mind before you started. Then one day, take all your tickets out of the folder and spread them out on the floor. (Earth is often a writer's best friend.) Read them and see what they tell you and the patterns that emerge. They will tell you what your memories are about and what they are not about.—Guillermo Zinsser
I can't begin to predict how news will be delivered to readers in, say, 100 years. But one thing that I know hasn't changed is that whatever the delivery system is, whether it's a magazine, a book or a blog, people like it.living writing, solid stories and credible people. So while the place changes rapidly, human nature doesn't change, which reassures me.—ana quindlen
Two roads diverged in a forest, I took the one less traveled. I'm patient, so it's one less hassle. If I dream about it, I can live it. I have seen the light with vivid images. I have to write with bursts of energy. But it's like I'm striving to get where I'm going. Without a hint or an omen. It's too late to turn back. Persistence, I have to learn now. But I'm stubborn, how am I supposed to survive this roller coaster crashing to the ground?—danny denzongpa
It all starts with writing. I heard Nikki Giovanni and I was blown away. I just thought "Wow"; She wrote from the perspective of a black girl and the images were so vivid that I started writing spoken words.—jill scott
A writer's job is to imagine everything so personally that the fiction is as vivid as the memories.—Juan Irving
Only invisible prose!” it excludes the sparkling style of [the writers]...For [whom] the vivid prose and the visionary spirit it expresses, rich in speculation, insight and subjectivity, is the craft and offers a unique measure of truth. Is there another form of art that one would praise as "invisible"? Art, by definition, goes beyond the ordinary, attracts attention and offers virtuosity as a cover letter. One that makes it possible to do what metaphors do so well: illuminate what cannot be fully understood.—Diana Ackerman
I walk up and down the shallow sea, I walk among them and think about what kind of fossil I would like to be. I suppose I'd like my bones to be replaced by a living flint, red ulna or radius, or perhaps survive as a mark of a sandstone-encased creature with cleated soles: how it walked, what it ate, and what it did. sun love?—ann kennel
I traveled to the places I was in because I had a vivid idea of the places.—Lailah Gifty Akita
We slip into a dream, forgetting the room we're sitting in, forgetting that it's lunchtime or time to go to work. With minor and mostly minor changes, we recreate the vivid, ongoing dream the author has carved out in his mind (and revisited over and over again until he got it right) and put it into language that other people, when they feel Maybe he opens his book and dreams this dream again.—Juan Gardner
That is the most important. The life of the line. When I draw it's like writing bound and unbound. My lines can be alive or dead. The drawing is beautiful when the line is vivid. A line is in danger of dying all the time.—Juan Cocteau
My drawing method is very similar to jazz improvisation. I improvise with lines and colors. (...)
Drawing is a lot of fun. Writing means drawing in different clothes, and drawing is a different way of writing. And when I draw, I write. Maybe I draw when I write.
Reading books makes us more aware of our personality and the aesthetic world in which we live. The writers we idolize use language, logic, and nuance to paint physical and emotional scenes with refined precision. An author's use of vivid language produces lasting effects that stagger the malleable mind of the reader. An agitated mind revives our semi-conscious memories; It causes us to evoke lasting images of our family, friends and acquaintances. Just as important, inspirational writing helps us recognize our own significant character traits and identify our previously unexpressed thoughts and feelings.—Kilroy J. Oldster
Novelists should never get bored while studying real life. If they did this duty conscientiously, they would give us fewer paintings with uneven contrasts of light and shadow; Rarely would they lift their heroes and heroines to the heights of ecstasy; still more rarely would they plunge them into the depths of despair; Because if in this life we rarely enjoy the fullness of joy, even less do we enjoy the bitter bitterness of hopeless torment.—Charlotte Bronte
