Grab a pencil/keyboard.
Go for broke!
Just thought I’d compile a few of the words I’ve been putting down.
Seems to be more inspiring work than simply writing for myself.
Hope it nudges a few writers forward to give it a try.
I’ll be adding more to the gallery.
My three favorite destinations so far:
I ran across this photo and it immediately revived my appreciation for Become An Idea Machine by Claudia Azula Altucher and James Altucher.
A few quotes from the book’s foreword by James:
“…idea generation, of the good kind, the kind that helps you AND OTHERS, which is the type you will exercise in this book, is worth ten times that, or more.”
“You can’t trust the old style of thinking anymore…You have to come up with a new way of thinking, a new way of having ideas…we can train it (the mind) to work for us, and to move us in the direction of a life of fulfillment. One day at a time.”
“The way is this: Come up with ten ideas a day.
“Coming up with ten ideas a day is like exercise. And exercise makes the idea muscle grow stronger.”
