It is necessary to write

“It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop.”

Write, write, and write some more

  1. Wonderful quote! I do think writers find it “necessary to write.” I have to write…I long to write…I write! I’m constantly adding phrase, words, poems to my notes app on my phone because I don’t want to forget them as they come to my mind. If I don’t write them down they will disappear like the wind.

Thoughts Are Always Appreciated =)
