Quotation – July 31, 2012

We, and I think I’m speaking for many writers, don’t know what it is that sometimes comes to make our books alive.  All we can do is to write dutifully and day after day, every day, giving our work the very best of what we are capable.  I don’t think that we can consciously put the magic in; it doesn’t work that way.  When the magic comes, it’s a gift.

I threw the thesaurus out years ago.  I found that every time you look up a word, if you want some word and you can think of an approximately close synonym for it and look it up, you only get cliche usages.  It’s much better to use a big dictionary and look up derivations and definitions of various usages of a different word.

I think writing verse is great training for a writer.  It teaches you to make your points and get your stuff clear, which is the great thing.
