Day 24 - A really long quote

"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 read 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 perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish 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 finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." - Ray Bradbury

Very topical quote...
I feel like a sublime fool right now, i think i've written a 30k word treatment for a novel, instead of the novel itself. *Sigh* editing in some other month

How well this sums up what I am feeling at this end of the month. It has been brilliant!

I am loving what I'm doing. If I could do this for the rest of my life I would be happy. There are so many stories in my "top shelf" wanting to fly free that hysteria must be their dominant emotion right now.
Let their madness see the light of day!
