“Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
I’m often asked “how do you become a writer?”. Sure, they teach creative writing classes, but they’re nothing more than elaborate practice sessions. Writing is an organic thing – it’s a feeling. That being said, I just ran across this quote. No one can teach you how to write, but if you understand what he’s saying on an instinctive level then you may have what it takes!
