A Month or So Ago

It is frustrating at times because one day you will be reading a book and thinking “This is great – This is the way to do it”, then two days later you’ll be reading another book and it’ll be doing the exact opposite thing, but you’ll think the exact same thing.

When faced with two opposite truths the issue is no longer to find the fault in one, but to decide between them. Which path will lead you to the place you want to go.

    Just shows that you have to find your own path: the thing that _you_ do that will someday perplex and confuse other up-and-coming writers =)

    As Yogi Berra apparently did actually say, “You can’t think and hit at the same time.” No rule that can’t be turned on its head exists in writing. But I’m not sure you can think and write at the same time. And I’m not sure lessons on writing come from the book just read so much as that book read twenty years ago and mostly forgotten now.

      Interesting.

      What do you think of the notion that you can’t write anything better than the best book you read in the previous six months?
