Blogspiration (2): Hemingway got it right
October 13, 2012 § 3 Comments
Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author’s choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.
Isn’t this just wonderful? Hemingway, you had it down pat.
I literally do not have words to describe how inspirational this simple message is to me. Write drunk; edit sober. I mean, it’s four words, but it contains an essay’s worth of talk. When you write, don’t let yourself be constricted by your worries, by your inability to write, by the plot bunnies or the writer’s block – just write. What you get down may be horrible because of your impromptu mind vomit, but once it’s edited? I get this feeling that it’ll be something special.
Write drunk. Edit sober.
