Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Quote of the Day

The habit of thinking of things in plastic and pictorial terms must have its influence upon the writer’s art, when you practise both as I do. First of all, I see! The first—and last—thing that I do is to use my eyes…The art of draughtsmanship is in the fullest sense a scientific study—it should help the writer of fiction. Anything that trains the mind to close observation should do that.

Wyndham Lewis
