Just a Belief

Nothing, completely, vanishes.
It either grows to an entity,
Or be demolished to
A memory.

Inspiring Quotes on Writing

* “When you finish a draft of a poem, or short story, or novel, you make sure you go out and celebrate all night long because whether the world over notices or not, whether you get it published or not, you did something most people never do: you started, stuck with, and finished a creative work. and that is a triumph.” Andre Dubus III

*”All writing problems are psychological problems. blocks usually stem from the fear of being judged. if you imagine the world listening, you’ll never write a line. that’s why privacy is so important. you should write first drafts as if they will never be shown to anyone.” Erica Jong

*”Success is a finished book, a stack of pages each of which is filled with words. if you reach that point, you have won a victory over yourself no less impressive than sailing single-handed around the world.” Tom Clancy

*”One of the really bad things you can do to your writing is to dress up the vocabulary, looking for the long words because you’re maybe a little bit ashamed of your short ones.” Stephen King

*”Writing is something you do alone. it’s a profession for introverts who want to tell you a storybut don’t want to make eye contact while doing it.: John Green

The Riddle of my Existence

I’m dwelling in a place
Where my body doesn’t belong to.
I’m occupying a sphere
That my feet can’t tread.
I can’t detect my prints
On the pen
Or words on the paper,
And I’m not surprised
Not to see my reflection
On the possessions of my room,
Or the walls that imprison me;
For it seems that
I’m here
Because I’m obliged to fill a sphere
That I never chose,
But still my mind is trying to chase
A clue; to figure out
The riddle of my existence.

“Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all.”
