The Bend in the Road

"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." ~Sylvia Plath

I'm pondering the idea of writing true. I'm not so sure that Sylvia Plath should be my inspiration, since she ended up with her head in the oven, but still...I'm questioning why I'm even engaging in this exercise, and where I'm supposed to go next.

Here's another quote that caught me today:

"Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depth of your heart; confess to yourself you would have to die if you were forbidden to write." ~Rainer Maria Rilke

My play is written. It's time to ponder what's next. This blog started as a launching pad for me to "get something out there." It got me to write a play, now I need to figure out the next step.

In another note, tomorrow is Groundhog Day. I actually really like Groundhog Day. It's a hint that spring WILL come, must come, and that there really will be daisies again.


  1. sci-fi erotica. That's what you should write next. Or something with elves.

  2. Is there a market for sci-fi erotica? I could totally get into that. Elves are just creepy. Fairies, maybe?

  3. You could try to frame out your Perspectives on the World- the things you know to be true. Maybe something will spring from that.

  4. Funny that they don't even need to sign their comments, do they?

    I love you.

    Time for a book?
