A beautiful Easter Sunday on the water with Mark Helprin my new favorite author. Very exhilarating not only for the fact that it was a blustery day (came about swiftly and heeled to starboard–yikes!) but exhilarating in the passionate writing I found in the author’s stories. Check him out.
QUOTE: They choose what is interesting over what is profound, the charming over the beautiful, the nimble over the true-Mark Helprin.
Writing tip: beauty is not in perfection, but in the reflection of time and experience. Write your characters from what you know, not what you imagine them to be.
