“The parchment is hairy.”
“As the harbor is welcome to the sailor, so is the last line to the scribe.”
“This is sad! O little book! A day will come in truth when someone over your page will say, ‘The hand that wrote it is no more.'”
After reading this + spending a rather long day catching up with writing (pre-writing really), a few random thoughts.
I wish that writing was as simple as sitting in the cool shade of a hanok home and peacefully jotting done profound thoughts while drinking a glass of barley tea, overlooking a beautiful courtyard (picture above).
Or maybe a party of brilliant thoughts, jumping up and down, waiting to wind up articulated into a Word document on my battle-weary MacBook.
But too often… it is just the slow slog through piles of information, papers, articles, and data that gets worked and re-worked into a 20 page article. #anotherdayofwriting
