M is for Magic. W is for Writing…

Quotes on writing from the book ‘Steal Like an Artist’, Austin Kleon

1. Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you’ll have to ram them down people’s throats. Howard Aiken

2. The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life. Jessica HischeΒ 

I’m usually doing Nada…you? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜

3. We want you to take from us! We want you, at first, to steal from us, because you can’t steal. You will take what we give you and you will put it in your own voice and that’s how you will find your voice. And that’s how you begin. And then one day someone will steal from you…Β Francis Ford Coppola

4. Start copying what you love. Copy, copy, copy, copy. At the end of the copy you will find your self. Yohji YamamotoΒ

  1. A few years ago, I would’ve published nothing because I was worried I’d be plagiarized; now, however, I realize that no one cares what I write and I should try to amuse a few people before I die. I’ve actually seen pieces of my work lifted and republished by someone else. Before, I would’ve cared… Now…


    • Lol we should be proud I guess πŸ™‚
      But it is also depends on HOW β€œplagiarized”…when I was in grade 9 (lol) I’ve told My childhood friend: β€œnever steal from 1 author, steal from 5 or better 10”; copy-paste is not-creative-enough πŸ˜‚

  2. “The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life. ”
    Profound, yes. Good quote.

  3. While I am procrastinating I am writing. Waving my fist at the universe perhaps but in any event it is cathartic. Like Vladimir and Estragon I am waiting for Godot who, by definition, will never arrive. So I have plenty of time!

  4. Love those pics of the day. Mine would be pretty boring. A shot of a computer. Another shot of a computer. Maybe a shot of a bowl of cereal. Dogs of course. Beach view. Great idea, Ray.

  5. Your blackboard and the juxtaposition of ‘good theft’ versus ‘bad theft’ had lol the cogs in my brain turning all evening! A while ago I was communicating via a comment thread with a Canadian Blogger and she said “don’t be surprised if someone copied at least one post of yours”. I really don’t mind as long as someone gave me credit! πŸ˜€

    • If they copied – they have to give u the credit, if the steal your idea and plus ideas of 4 other ppl + wrote similar but own text = that’s kinda a new β€œwork” lol #theft

    • I dont know why…but just found it in the spam, going to save it lol and read this evening! ✌️❀️ thx for participating πŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒ

  6. πŸ™‚ My response is published and hopefully linked, but πŸ˜€ unfortunately 1000 words! Someone tell me the secret to keeping a post under 1000!

  7. When I am procrastinating I am just lazing around. Perhaps that’s what I should do all the time! πŸ˜‚
    Loved the quotes. I should start stealing ideas and present them as my own! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
    Lovely pics Ray. πŸ‘Œ
    Enjoy your Sunday. πŸ’•

    • I checked actually 3-4 min ago…still can’t believe it was only 40 pics ‘wink’ ✌️ I enjoyed your photo-post! just awesome weekend
