"The written word is weak. Many people prefer life to it.
Life gets your blood going, and it smells good.
Writing is mere writing, literature is mere.
It appeals only to the subtlest senses--the imagination's
vision and the imagination's hearing--and the
moral sense, and the intellect. This writing that you do,
that so thrills you, that so rocks and exhilarates you,
as if you were dancing next to the band,
is barely audible to anyone else. The reader's ear must
adjust down from loud life to the subtle, imaginary
sounds of the written word. An ordinary reader
picking up a book can't hear a thing;
it will take half an hour to pick up the writing's
modifications, its ups and downs and louds and softs."
Keep writing. Finish what you start. Under all circumstances, stay the course. Write. Write. Write.
Now go write something.
I dare you.
See you in print,
Linda Della Donna
If I can write a book, so can you!
