Thirty Word Thursday

If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it. 

– Anais Nin

Nice quote, thanks for sharing Michelle.

LOL. Until recently, there was tons of breathing in my wip (I overused the word). I cried while I wrote scenes. Oh and I had to write lyrics for one scene instead of using the Aerosmith song I wanted to use. I'm guessing that's not what Anais meant, huh? ;)

Loved the quote!

What got me was the "because our culture has no use for it" part. THAT made me think. Made me remember that my MS has gotta WORK, y'all; it's gotta say something - it's got a job to do :) Thanks!
