Believe it or not – it’s sunny!
Yes, the three consecutive months of rain have actually rained themselves out. Today we’ve had sunshine. So, naturally, all lawn enthusiasts laboured over their mowers – the sound of hiccuping, spluttering motors filled the land for well over twelve hours. It’s finally quiet now, but it is 8 pm so I imagine, just like me, most people are lounging in the sunshine (still sunny, long may it last, fingers crossed) holding tight onto a tall glass filled with something cold and relaxing with a good book.
Relaxing makes me think about writing, and one thought leads to another.
The first two quotes made me wonder if I really know what I am doing to myself.
Writers are a little below the clowns and a little above the trained seals. (John Steinbeck)
Asking a writer what he thinks about criticism is like asking a lamppost what it feels about dogs. (John Osborne)
And this last one makes me feel so much better about my chosen trade. I don’t need much to write.
Inventing is a combination of brains and materials. The more brains you use, the less materials you need. (Charles F. Kettering)
