We both self-published around the same time and often shared ideas and information. Although different genres, her’s memoir and mine a book about creativity, her writing touched me deeply then and still does now. Christine’s honest prose has a way of helping writers to cut through the cultural values of fame and fortune and write for reasons not always marketable.
The quote she posts on the front page of her blog is a perfect example of her liberating perspective:
“And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.” ~William Shakespeare
I’d sure like to reword this quote for us writers:
And this, our writing, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
