Try to be original in your play and as clever as possible; but don’t be afraid to show yourself foolish; we must have freedom of thinking, and only he is an emancipated thinker who is not afraid to write foolish things.

I don’t give a damn what other people think. It’s entirely their own business. I’m not writing for other people.

David Enblom is an artist living in Lowertown St. Paul who was recently the subject of a retrospective show at the 262 Building that closed last weekend. One of the centerpieces of Enblom’s show was a series of hundreds of photographs of barns, all shot on digital camera within about 40 miles of the Twin Cities between 2002 and 2006.

Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch.

It is not an exaggeration to say that a novel is its point of view, for point of view determines the readers’ responses, controls the readers’ sympathies or empathies for the characters, and engages or distances the readers’ emotional involvement in the fictional world … In novels, point of view is even more important than it is in short stories and novellas, if only because of the more extensive world the author is creating. Point of view can help you create your fictional world more realistically and make your characters more alive for your audience, so it is essential to understand and master point of view.
