Rory, our rapscallion of a wordsmith, has posed yet another challenge..this time on “creative writing”.
For those that have been living in the woods without the internet, Rory’s challenge is called 3,2,1 Quote Me.
The “rules” are fairly easy to understand…that is, if you understand the mind of Rory (I do not) so just follow them as best you can and play along.
Rules: 3.2.1 Quote Me!
Thank the Selector
Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day.
Select 3 bloggers to take part in ‘3.2.1 Quote Me!’
See what I mean? Yea, no clue here either and I have already completed one of these. In any event, I do thank Mr. Rory for thinking I am capable of completing this……
The subject did remind me though, of an interview of Jodi Picoult (pretty sure it was Oprah asking all the questions) where Ms. Picoult stated…..
“You can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.”
I obviously have taken half of that to heart when it comes to my own semi-creative writing. I usually fail to edit, but I always write…even if it is tital gibberish.
I do rather well at gibberish…just not very well at “real” writing as my old college professor put it. I digress.
The challenge is sort of to find two quotes that meet the criteria for the subject…I think. So, one down and one to go.
(WOW. You are still reading this tripe? cool!)
It just now occurred to me that if this challenge was in Latin I would have a much easier time of it.
“Omne initium novum alio initio est ab aliquo fine est.” Seneca
what? You don’t read Latin? Sorry, sorry…let me just translate that for you…
“every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end.”
Tada! I think I managed it. Now onwards to
annoy irritate demand threaten NOMINATE a few peeps to do the same challenge.
