“Just write every day of your life.
Read intensely. Then see what happens.
Most of my friends who are put on
that diet have very pleasant careers.”
— Ray Bradbury —
Celebrated my birthday this last weekend…
He pulled out the box from a hiding place behind the sofa,
and my heart skipped a beat–I’ve seen old typewriter boxes before.
I opened the mysterious box, and this was the paper
queued up in the 1950s Remington typewriter.
Isn’t it an absolute beauty? He knows me so well! 🙂
And after having typed on this marvelously noisy beast,
(at odd hours, much to the annoyance and amusement of my family)
I now better understand the beauty of this quote by Ernest Hemingway:
“There is nothing to writing.
All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
