I am taking "Short Flights " to my local writing group. I am the only poet in the midst of about ten aspiring novelists. I have gently urged them to study poetry- that it would greatly benefit their writing structure, syntax etc. For me, it's not whether you've written 2000 words this week, but whether you have simple clarity in one thing, an image that can stop the reader in their tracks and make them ponder what they thought they knew...
This book of aphorisms, written by thirty-two top-notch writers, is a catalyst for better writing and deeper thinking.
I will be buying a few more copies of this book to give as gifts to my very special friends; it would be a great staple for the nightstand, or dare I say it? A wonderful bathroom companion!
