My Name is Mina by David Almond
“Words should wander and meander. They should fly like owls and flicker like bats and slip like cats. They should murmur and scream and dance and sing.”
David Almond

Jimi Hendrix
“All I'm writing is just what I feel, that's all. I just keep it almost naked. And probably the words are so bland.”
Jimi Hendrix

Ovid
“I am the poet of the poor, because I was poor when I loved; since I could not give gifts, I gave words.”
Ovid

Tom Waits
“I’ve always been a word guy, I like weird words and I like American slang and all that and words that are no longer being used… I like to drag them out of the box and wave them around… this is an interesting one, it’s amazing how in addition to punctuation just a little pause in the wrong place can just completely transform the meaning of something.”
Tom Waits

David Almond
“Words should wander and meander. They should fly like owls and flicker like bats and slip like cats. They should murmur and scream and dance and sing.”
David Almond, My Name is Mina

Gaston Bachelard
“A word is a bud attempting to become a twig. How can one not dream while writing? It is the pen which dreams. The blank page gives the right to dream.”
Gaston Bachelard
