Over the summer holidays I read a few books including Stephen King’s great bio/howto: On Writing. In the first few pages he discusses the importance of a writer’s editor. And in brilliant little play on words he states:
to write is human, to edit, devine
This term is of course derived from the almost proverbial quote by poet Alexander Pope to err is human, to forgive divine.
I am not a writer, I’m a designer, and after reading King’s Quote i sat there for a while and tried to come up with my own mantra.
To sketch is human, to design is divine is what i got. i love it, it rhymes, has alliteration, and is to the point!
I also over summer read a book about Murakami and saw so many beautiful orchids… All those summer experiences have come together for my first piece of 2009.
I also googled my new mantra and was so happy to see that at least on the web no one else had written it yet, proving there is still some space for new ideas. especially in wonderful place like redbubble!
