Thoughts on books and reading that come in and out my life along with fiction created along the way
Edited and moved to Scribbles and Diversions with a recorded reading of the reflection at Audioboo
Great post, John! I'm sure I'll refer back to this as I'm writing.
This so ties in with discussions I'm currently having with a fellow blogger...Words have a habit of tumbling from my imagination when I write poetry, and 'form' can become secondary to the 'thought'. Trying to please others can often be a damper to creativity, but I do see the need for underlying structure, or writing can be mere waffle. I imagine it to be rather different for those who write stories or novels, which must need greater organisation if they are to be a pleasing whole.
My Father told me way-back-when, " To write something every day- even if it was just a sentence-" Leave the critic out and just 'remark', 'respond', 'reflect'-whatever it took...So that has been my daily regime- and as you saythe editor/ teacher comes after!
