Sunday Sermon

"I have never felt like I was creating anything. For me, writing is like walking through a desert and all at once, poking up through the hardpan, I see the top of a chimney. I know there's a house under there, and I'm pretty sure that I can dig it up if I want. That's how I feel. It's like the stories are already there. What they pay me for is the leap of faith that say's: 'If I sit down and do this, everything will come out OK.'"

-----Stephen King (Quoted in Writer's Digest Jan.2010 issue)


I completely agree Mr. King. Any of you agree with me and Mr. King or is writing something else to you?

  2. Nice quote!

    :)

    King always says the wisest things. That sounds about right to me.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, dear, and also mentioning Snow Patrol and Jam and Zombies and Writing. That made me smile ;)

  3. * Thank you Abhas! And your coin selection is beautiful. Do you also write or have a art (aside from choosing beautiful coins)?

    * And Mia, you are so right about King. His view on writing makes so much sense to me. I loved his book 'On Writing'. I would simply love to sit and have a drink with him. Just chat about writing and anything else that comes to mind.

    And how could I not mention the above items. Recently I can't get the first third of 'The Lightning Strike' out of my head. ;-D

    Nice to meet you!
