Creative Writing Blog

oh George Orwell!!

As you might have gathered, I like quotes. I like that there’s always a tasty maxim to use to any given situation, and it’s an easy way look smart but not actually have to think or anything….

So, here’s a quote for this Creative Blog Post:

“For a creative writer possession of the “truth” is less important than emotional sincerity.”
- George Orwell

Well, my immediate thought for this one is that to the creative writer – emotion sincerity IS the truth!

Perhaps a little solipsist, yes, but who else but the writer believes in her own thoughts above everything else.

Too deep? Doesn’t have to be.

Ask yourself, what does this mean for you?

And now write it!!
