“I used to underline sentences that struck me, that made me look up from the page… I noted them for their clarity, their rhythm, their beauty and their enchantment. For surely it is a magical thing for a handful of words, artfully arranged, to stop time. To conjure a place, a person, a situation, in all its specificity and dimensions. To affect us and alter us, as profoundly as real people and things do… The best sentences orient us, like stars in the sky, like landmarks on a trail.”
“Respect your inner compass. It points to yarn.”
“A writer is a world trapped in a person.”
Nope people being offended that I won’t answer an anon question. I’m going to stop answering no, if you don’t mind. Like I said, no offence intended and I hope you have a pleasant rest-of-your-tumblr experience!
No offence intended, I’m sure you’re a lovely tumblr person who I would like to hug. As a teacher though, I do have to weed out the student anons. Normally I don’t answer them to avoid this exchange. Have a pleasant day!
