Quotation for “Our” Readers


Readers!

An author worships readers. We woo them, tempt them and, if desperate enough, we stalk them (through marketing efforts).

Seldom do we herald them. Thanks to Nathalie Foy ( nathaliefoy.wordpress.com ) of Toronto, Canada, I present today’s quotation that is all about THE READER!

Nick Hornby, wrote:

 “There comes a point in life, it seems to me, where you have to decide whether you’re a Person of Letters or merely someone who loves books, and I’m beginning to see that the book lovers have more fun.  Persons of Letters have to read things like Candide or they’re a few letters short of the whole alphabet; book lovers, meanwhile, can read whatever they fancy.”

In Love


In love,  hurting from the truth is better than living a lie.

Thanks to Curly Miri for inspiring  today’s quote. I paraphrased something she said in her brave and vulnerable post entitled “Walking Away.” Read the entire post here: http://curlymiri.wordpress.com/2012/10/26/walking-away/#comment-1003

55 Words Microfiction: Lightning Crashes


Thanks to you and your advice, my brain was jogged loose from being stuck.

You know what’s funny? The idea that first came to me evaporated when I began to write. My brain took over. It decided that the story generated from the song prompt needed to be a 55-word flash fiction piece. Like lightning, it is quick and brilliantly illuminating.

The story is a study in contrasts, as is the song which prompted it. I hope you enjoy it. It was hard coming, but like childbirth, when it finally happened, it poured out in an instant.

Lightning Crashes

She misses the thunderhead building until a flash illuminates his actions.

When she asks him the first pointed question, she opens a door and looses a tornado in the room. The argument is at hurricane force, words hurling back and forth, slicing through heart tissue, wounding fatally.

From love to hate, it happens so fast.

Quotation for 7-28-2012


Writing a romance story? Perhaps you can find inspiration in today’s quotation:

“The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.” 

― Rumi,  The Illuminated Rumi

Same author, more inspiration on the same topic:

“I want to see you.
Know your voice.
Recognize you when you first come ’round the corner.
Sense your scent when I come into a room you’ve just left.
Know the lift of your heel, the glide of your foot.
Become familiar with the way you purse your lips then let them part, just the slightest bit, when I lean in to your space and kiss you.
I want to know the joy of how you whisper ‘more.'”

 ― Rumi

as i knew you always would be


I pressed this from Coco J. Ginger. I love the raw power of the pain she expresses. We’ve all stood  in these shoes somewhere in time. As you read this, are you feeling it, too:

I didn’t believe in past lives, but if I did I would believe that you lived one, and in that life you were everything I knew you could be. You acted as tangible men did, and you were good, so so good, superior to all others in every way. As I knew you always would be. And I loved you. You, being everything I deserved, worthy of my every affection. Free to embrace the height of my passion. But as I said before, I don’t believe in past lives, and I don’t believe in you.

via as i knew you always would be.

Never Pass Up an Opportunity to Love


Those aren’t just words, but lifeblood to me. NEVER PASS UP AN OPPORTUNITY TO LOVE. In this life, it is something that never grows old — either to give or to receive. One never exceeds one’s capacity to give it. One never runs out of room to receive it.

(And for those skeptics out there, I have the fortune cookie to prove it. “There is only one happiness in life: to love and to be loved.”  You can’t argue with the ancient wisdom of the Chinese. Sorry. This is a serious subject, but I couldn’t resist. I really do have the fortune on my frig door.)

Love can be practiced simply through random acts of kindness. My hope is that acts of kindness happen more frequently than not, so that random can no longer be used to describe them.

If you are a hermit or live far from any other being on whom to practice love, then my advice to you is write about it and publish. You have found  a way to give it away.

****

Here’s a little metaphysical advice from http://blueaventurine.wordpress.com/:

Be still and listen. Observe and interpret. Abolish, diminish, expel fear and embrace love. There is no need to second guess, trust and you will always do the right thing. Support is abundant, just ask because it can come to you from many angles.
