Favourite Lines I Wrote Today:
‘Nice office, Jimmy,’ he said with a whistle.
‘I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic of not.’
‘No, man, I’m serious. You’ve got walls and everything. I’m out there in the bullpen. If I wanna let one rip I have to hide in the bathroom. And that bathroom’s so small that I’m gassing myself out when I’m in there. So sometimes if I feel a rumble in my gut I have to go for a walk. I say I’m going out for air but I’m going out to fart. It’s no way for a man to live. Anyway, what’s up?’
Lines I Wish I Had Written:
Some of this book—perhaps too much—has been about how I learned to do it. Much of it has been about how you can do it better. The rest of it—and perhaps the best of it—is a permission slip: you can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will. Writing is magic, as much the water of life as any other creative art. The water is free. So drink. Drink and be filled up.
From On Writing by Stephen King
(A great book about the art of writing told in a completely un-full of bullshit way.)
