I felt the need to blog some quotations from April’s Writing Magazine. These really resonated with me.
Alison Chisholm – “The beauty of interpreting poetry is that it does not matter if the vision conjured in the reader’s mind is different from the one released by the poet’s pen.”
Russell T. Davies in his book ‘The Writer’s Tale’ – “There’s not the writer and then me, there’s just me. All of my life connects with writing.”
Tony Rossiter – “The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”
Douglas McPherson – “The only way to keep technical ability up is to do it all day every day so while you can dabble in lots of things, if you want to be really good at something you have to choose one thing and stick to it.”
Some good advice I think!
