The Writer’s Path


“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. …


It’s the streaming reason for living.

To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing,


to cherish the oddities,


to let nothing go down the drain,


to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”
—Enid Bagnold

    I love this. I would like to amend the quote, though: “to be astonished at nothing, to be astonished at everything.” hahaha


    1. I have to agree with you. The first time I read it I read it wrong because my brain wanted to say what yours did.

        Yes, right! Then I could see it both ways. Because of course writing has to encompass all.
