Tuesday’s Thought For The Day!

So true. And to go along with that. Every book you’ve every read is just a different combination of 26 letters.

  1. Hi, Kat. I just discovered you on WordPress, and I’ve been browsing. I love the comment you added to this post. In fact, if you don’t mind I’m going to quote you when I do my next creative writing class — which starts in two weeks. I try to help my students understand that great stories — those that will last for generations — revolve around universal themes and all tell of the events, emotions, battles, and victories that the human race has experienced since its beginning — but what they must learn to do is to tell those same stories in their own individual style and their own personal voice. Your statement here is perfect. It gives me a new jumping off point to make that point in words that are not coming just from their teacher.

    1. Hi Sandra, I’m glad you appreciate my thoughts and thank you for the support! Unfortunately, I cannot take undue credit. I’m not the first person to say the comment that I did. I would still suggest giving it to your class, however, as I think it would be impactful all the same.

      1. Thank you. I’ll still mention your blog to them and let them know that’s where I found it. I try to encourage them to blog as well, so that will be another incentive. Blogging and interacting with other writers from around the world — and taking part in all kinds of writing challenges — is terrific exercise and discipline. It’s a ready made tool for writers wanting to expand and sharpen their craft, so I’m big on encouraging my students to take advantage of it. I’ll Google the quote and see what I can find.

      2. It absolutely is a great tool to sharpen their skills with and get in touch with other people who enjoy writing as well.
        I would appreciate any follows and readership also! So thank you for mentioning me 🙂
