There’s this quote from George Bernard Shaw
‘Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.’
A nasty sentiment, but so succinct that it’s insidious. Anyhow, I apply that to myself – I like to write (notice this is a blog, duh) and definitely love to read (refer again to blog). Writing fiction? That would be awesome, but I don’t feel inspired to. I’d like to.
Maybe my third career will be writing fiction, assuming that a decent amount of inspiration strikes me. I don’t have the patience for teaching. For now, I am thinking “those who can, write. Those who can’t write, read. Those who don’t write but think it would be cool to write … blog about reading about writing”
Heh. Here’s a really nice reference post of many resources for writing fantasy!
