Jack London – a writer’s mantra

I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.

said Jack London.

I would rather be earth than dust!

I would rather my spark should kindle a  bright home fire than it should be stifled by dry-rot

I would rather be a  vibrant planet every inch of me nurturing of life, than a superb meteor

The function of man is to create not to exist

I will live my life to prolong my creative days

I shall use my time

I responded.

 

 

Performance at Spineless Authors Night

This one not so sure about as it depends on farce, and didn’t know if others would find it funny or just unbelievable..

Play list on Spotify called ‘Notting Hill’
It got  a few laughs,  generous applause and people were kind enough to say they thought it was good.  One fellow author said the LSD scene was very realistic which he thought was difficult to do.
A member of one of the writers groups I attend was chatting with me afterwards when another person came up to say how good he thought it was.  The group member said something to the effect that  ‘yes we have heard the development of the novel over the years, and let me tell you there have been some longueurs’
longueurs
  1. a tedious passage in a book, piece of music,
