Four quotations for DIFFICULT WRITING DAYS

British author, Alan Garner: “I look on the ‘down’ as an imposed period of hibernation that allows the unconscious and creative mind to overcome the rational intellect.”

German artist, Joseph Beuys: “Every creative person must go through a season in hell in order to reach a deeper level of perception.”

American children’s author, Michael Cadnum: “…writers tend to embrace their own suffering with too much enthusiasm. Writing is work, but not the worst work in the world.”

Brazilian poet, Carlos Drumond de Andrade: “pois a hora mais bela/surge da mais triste.” (“Because the most beautiful moment/grews out of the saddest hour.”)
