Splashing around in books.
Like I felt I have drifted too away from the art of language and writing recently, I opened a book called Reading Like A Writer and it pointed me back to some of the artsy way of writing--reminds me that language is the basic element of literature.Sometimes I just need that mental bootcamp a book has to offer. :-)
Matt: My best friend / reading partner, she just read this book you are mentioning, and she loved it.And she is both brilliant and artsy. And a writer.So true, language is the basic element of literature.Just like phrasing is the basic element of music, in my opinion. My favorite vocalists are those that have a grasp of what "phrasing" is all about.All the best to you, Matt.-- Cip
