Blogspiration (22):Sublime Fool

Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author's choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.

"To sum it all up, if you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must write dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfume and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish for you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories--science fiction or otherwise. Which means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world."
Ray Bradbury, Author of Farenheit 451 August 22, 1920 - June 5, 2012

    THIS = PERFECTION. A million, hundred, twenty times perfection. And exactly something I want/need to hear right now.

    It's so beautifully written and INSPIRING. It makes me want to just go WRITE and not worry about how it turns out, just write to create something. I'm such a planner (I don't exaggerate, I've been working on this one thing since 2008. 6 notebooks later and I'm only JUST finding the missing elements), but all the planning in the world cannot trump experience. Just jumping in and DOING. And I go DO now! <3
