Quote of the day

"A writer is someone who spends years patiently trying to discover the second being inside him, and the world that makes him who he is: when I speak of writing, what comes first to my mind is not a novel, a poem, or literary tradition, it is a person who shuts himself up in a room, sits down at a table, and alone, turns inward; amid its shadows, he builds a new world with words." -- ORHAN PAMUK

What do you think about this "second being" stuff? Agree or disagree?


  1. I'm not sure, but I know I talk to myself a lot, so either I'm crazy, or he's right; there's someone else in here with me.

  2. I'm not sure either. There is some creative part of ourselves but I'm not sure I would describe it this way.

  3. Hee hee. It's my alternate ego. =)

    P.S. An award for you!
