Doing That Writing Thing
I write because to not write is to not breathe. I think I’m not alone in how I feel. .
“It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop.” This quote by Vita Sackville-West is my very favorite writing quote.
Why do you write, and what’s your favorite writing quote?
