Ever tried to work out what it is you want to do badly enough to kill for? I am sadly clueless. And, that is how I ended up reading why you fail at writing. No, that’s not a clue.
It works on many levels. Especially “Some things can not be done. Writing without writing is one of them.” So, doing is the theme. Hah doing, sure doing. The only thing I’m doing, is playing scrabble and guest starring in “what I think” conversations. You know how someone else is having a thought huddle and you pipe in to say something only you think is important and wonder why you did it. Oh, you don’t. I see. Good for you.
More to the point is what is said about “…the second law of thermodynamics applied to creative works. The natural state of a book idea is for it not to be written. We have to expend extra energy to manifest an idea in the world, and that’s why making things can be so magical.” Manifestation. Viral. Probably why even plagiarism is still doing. HALKa in Bangladesh or even We are Family (no way am I linking this) makes you appreciate the doing no? Both adaptations of hollywood films (The Hulk & Step Mom) albeit parodies in their own way.
I fully understand, even as I rely so much on words within quotes, that “Quotation is a serviceable substitute for wit” [Oscar Wilde]. This is no inspiration, its plain writing with a crutch. I could say its because the words escape the meaning I want to convey. Sometimes. Though right now, sitting on a bed drenched in rain water, skipping dinner again, hearing the fan pull itself together, I wonder am I also exactly how
“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone elses opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”
