Monday Musings

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at the typewriter and open a vein."
~Walter Wellesley "Red" Smith

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! We had an impromptu party at The Manor and I graced our guests dressed as Professor Trelawny of Hogwarts ... photo to come!

A happy November to everyone,

Love that quote. ALL it takes is opening a vein! :) Sounds like you had a great weekend!

Awesome quote Jen!

I need to open every vein. Does that mean it should be painful too?

Looking forward to the picture.

Joanne said...

I've seen that quote often, and oh is it ever true! But it does give a genuine honesty to our words, putting our voice on the page effectively. Happy Writing!

Fabulous Smith quote. And so very true, too.

Love the quote. Only thing worth writing is when it takes parts of you, part of your very life force, to write.

Professor Trelawny is a superb choice for a costume. Emma Thompson's performance leaves me in stitches every time I watch the movie.

Wonderful quote; because it's so, so true.
