This quote really got me it applies to my writing and It applies to all creative aspects of life, just substitute the word live for write. It works. "Write without thinking of the result in terms of a result, but think of the writing in terms of discovery, which is to say that creation must take place between the pen and the paper, not before in a thought or afterwards in a recasting. It will come if it is there and if you will let it come.

As a book reviewer, I aways try to emphasize the positive. I give a synopsis of the book, attempt to show what the author is trying to say or do in their book and if he/she succeeded. I compare the piece with other books that are in the same genre or if non-fiction, the same or nearly the same topic. I compare the author's prose sytle with established authors. I point out strengths and weaknesses of the book with constructive criticism. While writing a review I do not use sarcasm, I am not mean and I do not call attention to myself. A book reviewer is supposed to write intelligent, well-informed, clear and concise critiques, not entertain with quips and comments that are equivalent to the dialogue of a situation comedy. L.
