live life to the fullest


I put the pencil to the paper,
And watch the lines appear.
My minds thoughts surging,
From something close and near.
My pencil is my sword,
My paper the enemy.
I talk to the paper,
My only friend I see.
The best thing about the paper,
It doesn't talk back to me.
So I put the pencil to the paper,
And watch the lines appear.
My minds thoughts surging,
From something close and near.

"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

That is so awesome, I love it! I feel the same way.

"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."
