The splendour of thought: Writers Quote Wednesday



Those sudden flashes of wonderful thoughts, ideas, inspirations, whatever one wishes to name it, are exhilarating. Not just for writers and artists but for all people. A moment which, in an extravagant way or a quiet contemplative manner, will change something; a life, a canvas, a narrative.

I have had many such moments in my life, encouraged, by my father in particular, to allow thoughts to peculate almost haphazardly through the mind. To allow thoughts outside the norm to enter. Everyone a delight.

A few are more splendid than the others and take one flying.



This quote is part of Silver Threading’s  Writer’s Quote series. Writer’s who have helped inspire my writing.

To write one must engage with the world around. Imagination is not the everything, imagination needs feeding with experience and observation. Life is what feeds writers.

    thanks – the rose is my garden but I cannot get the colour true up here on line – it is more mauve than this but still it is a beautiful rose.
