Yikes! Has It Been A Week Since I Blogged?

This week has been a bit hectic, both at the day job and the run-up to NaNoWriMo and of course, Halloween. My neighborhood gets approximately eighty-thousand trick-or-treaters so it’s an event that must be planned for and executed.

One Of My Favorite Quotes About Writing

rb

“Three things are in your head: First, everything you have experienced from the day of your birth until right now. Every single second, every single hour, every single day. Then, how you reacted to those events in the minute of their happening, whether they were disastrous or joyful. Those are two things you have in your mind to give you material. Then, separate from the living experiences are all the art experiences you’ve had, the things you’ve learned from other writers, artists, poets, film directors, and composers. So all of this is in your mind as a fabulous mulch and you have to bring it out.”

~ Ray Bradbury, from Zen and the Art of Writing
