April Is National Poetry Month! Quote on Poetry

I am a bit under the weather, so no post yesterday.  Today, a quote to think about; here’s two:

“A writer is someone who pays attention to the world — a writer is a professional observer.”
— From Susan Sontag’s 1992 lecture on the purpose of literature. (via explore-blog)

“Some words build houses in your throat. And they live there, content and on fire.”
— Nayyirah Waheed (via brouhahamagazine)

Paying attention to details, the specific, all that others ignore. makes a writer better.
