Build

 

A writer is not just a creator,

she is a builder

of kingdoms and worlds

constructing and putting together

all the pieces that make up the story

giving life

to characters, large and small

painting, sculpting

to bring each setting to

its glorious and colorful

splendor

To build, create

is every writer’s hidden power

whether she choose

to give it life, or not

lies in her hands

Fun Friday

We made it to (just about here in the US) Friday!  Yay!  Don’t know about you but the past week was exhausting.  Pull up a chair, grab that cup of coffee, and let’s do something fun!

Here’s mine:  Whispering shadows were all I knew.

 

Now it’s your turn!

 

 

To Live Is To Create

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
George Bernard Shaw

I found this quote somewhere online, Goodreads I believe.  I really like it.  To me this means that instead of being a passive individual just living, going through the motion each day, we need to be active and pro-active.  We can’t expect opportunities to come to us.  We can’t expect dreams to just happen.  We’d be waiting and nothing will occur.  Life would become a bitter disappointment.

For artists, this means we need to be actively creating each and every day.  This is who we are.  We can’t be passive and expect ourselves to be happy or content with our lives.

What was any art but a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself – life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose.  ~Willa Cather

Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul — and you answer. ~Terri Guillemets
