musings

I like many things. I like music, cool local photography, interior design, french, secret spots around the city, and books. I have opinions, and sometimes I like to write about them. This is where I talk about what I like. 

This is where you can meet the real me. 

on writing.

Stephen King has written a lot of books that scared the crap out of millions of people. He's great at making us feel fear through the power of words. "On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft" however, is his best piece of writing. When answering the question, "What is writing, really?" he calls it telepathy. To be exact, he tells his readers this: "We've engaged in an act of telepathy. No myths-mountain shit; real telepathy." To prove his point, he describes the room he is writing in, creates a solid image in the reader's mind, of a moment that occurred years ago. 

I didn’t tell you. You didn’t ask me. I never opened my mouth and you never opened yours. We’re not even in the same year together, let alone the same room... except we are together. We’re close. We’re having a meeting of the minds.
— Stephen King
