My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Three For Thursday

[I think I actually have hit an alliteration title that doesn't trigger my fight or flight response to its stupidity. So I guess I'm doing quotes on Thursday now. Now if I can just think of synonym for pimp that starts with a T, I can do Pimping Links Tuesday....]

Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment is recognition of the pattern.
Alfred North Whitehead (1861 - 1947), Dialogues (1954)

So you see, imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering.
Brenda Ueland

Write something to suit yourself and many people will like it; write something to suit everybody and scarcely anyone will care for it.
Jesse Stuart

I will be going to Dundracon this weekend (which, among other things, means trying to bring my body back to a vaguely diurnal schedule over the weekend, so I'm not a shambling zombie for anything that starts before noon). I should be able to update without any trouble, and I might even have a few writer-observations about the event to share when I get back.
