The Courage to Write by Ralph Keyes

Clear rating
I wanted to like this more because I wanted to learn how to transcend fear but mostly I was irritated by Keyes.

I found his description of writers obnoxious - like spoiled brats who need to get over themselves. I was also annoyed at the discussion of

Ill Nature by Joy Williams

So these were intense.

I think my favorite thing about most of these was how much research she had clearly done. These are labeled as rants and she is definitely ranting but every rant is very thoroughly researched. It's impressive because who wants

This was a cute story but I feel like there was too much going on. There were so many potential stories that could have happened that it made it confusing for me as the reader to know where it was going. I liked her friends and brothers though. :)

The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Rate this book

This is the story of the four Karamazov brothers (duh) in light of the murder of their father. Who done it?! Is anyone sad about it? :-/

This is a looooooong book so there's a lot to say about it - bear with me.

Thought #1: it's interesting that it's

Zora Neale Hurston
“There is a basin in the mind where words float around on thought and thought on sound and sight. Then there is a depth of thought untouched by words, and deeper still a gulf of formless feelings untouched by thought.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

John Patrick Shanley
“Doubt requires more courage than conviction does, and more energy; because conviction is a resting place and doubt is infinite – it is a passionate exercise. You may come out of my play uncertain. You may want to be sure. Look down on that feeling. We’ve got to learn to live with a full measure of uncertainty. There is no last word. That’s the silence under the chatter of our time. ”
John Patrick Shanley, Doubt

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“After all, it is sometimes rather enjoyable to feel insulted, is it not? For the person knows that no one has insulted him, and that he himself has thought up the insult and told lies as an ornament, has exaggerated in order to create a certain impression, has seized on a word and made a mountain out of a molehill – is well aware of this, and yet is the very first to feel insulted, feel insulted to the point of pleasure, to the point of great satisfaction, and for that very reason ends up nurturing a sense of true animosity…”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamozov

Patrick Ness
“You do not write your life with words...You write it with actions. What you think is not important. It is only important what you do.”
Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls
