“Silence is a source of great strength,” Lao Tzu.
Silence. Sometimes nothing can be more beautiful for a writer. At other times, silence can be disturbing.
If you are like me, that is having no life, you may understand what I meant by that. I often feel like I know why a majority of writers around the Victorian era were alcoholics. They didn’t have facebook.
I believe those of us who choose to write are a different breed of human. Where some only see big picture, we can see the individual molecules that create the scene of the whole. We are able replicate the picture realistically, or distort into an Urban Fantasy.
Though our work and passion is lonely in nature, we are all inspired by the calamity of life. Of course, we distort and rearrange details so that we are not held liable in court for making an impression of a living person or place.
