"When I started getting real work done, I realized how much easier it is to write than not to write."
"Writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade just as painting does, or music. If you are born knowing them, fine. If not, learn them. Then rearrange the rules to suit yourself."

Last year, the Italian photographer Vittoria Mentasti travelled to Canada to pursue the story of the Inuit people of Nunavut, the northernmost region of the Canadian Arctic. “I became interested in this story because of how completely removed it is from the consciousness of most Americans,” Mentasti said.

"What matters today is not work but laziness"
( Patrick B. & Daniel P. )
"It can have humor or darkness — I’ve published stories about breakups, funerals, and cancer, to name a few — and could be about anything from politics to sports to sex clubs. If there’s one thing I hope people take away from my erotic writing workshop, it’s that anything can be eroticized!"
"Silence is so accurate."
Rare Temperature Inversion Fills Grand Canyon with Fog
For more photos from Friday’s fog, explore the #grandcanyon hashtag.
On Friday, 29 November, visitors to the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA, were greeted with an unlikely surprise as dense, low-hanging fog filled the canyon’s gorges in a rare atmospheric event.
The phenomenon is known as a temperature inversion, where a layer of hot air at higher altitude prevents colder air and fog underneath from rising. Inversions of this magnitude are thought to occur only about once per decade at the Grand Canyon, and visiting Instagrammers documented the event in force.
"To literary critics a book is assumed to be guilty until it proves itself innocent."
