Quote: Charlotte Bronte

Quote: Charlotte Bronte


       This quote by the wonderful Charlotte Bronte pretty much sums it up for me. Sometimes, writing is not about inspiring or being creative. For those few moments in reality, we write simply because we just can’t help it. And for the lucky ones, these moments come more often than sometimes. I know this might sound like a bit of an exaggeration, but to certain writers, writing is akin to breathing. Just as we need oxygen to survive, writers need writing in order to live- you wonder why people say writers are insane. I say if insanity means living a life worthwhile by creating a world unimaginable to the ‘sane’, then yes, writers are insane.

I’m going to keep this post short and say briefly, sometimes, we write because we just can’t help it. And you know, that is answer enough to anyone who questions. On a side note, Charlotte Bronte is a poet and novelist. She lived till the age of 38 when she passed away whilst pregnant. She is the author of the highly acclaimed novel Jane Eyre.

      1. very true, it is great. I have a fictional photo prompt writing challenge on, it would be lovely if you would join it’s open for a week and a half, its my last post written, called Eclectic corner writing challenge x


  1. How very interesting. Love Jane Eyre too! I think anyone with a passion for almost anything can’t help pursuing it. How difficult it must have been to write back then. No access to computers. Probably even pen and paper would have been scarce. How fortunate we are.

    I wonder if the next time I do something…anything…like burn the toast, I can get away with saying, “I can’t help it.” 🙂

  2. You write also because YOU (Ameena) are excellent at it! 🙂 Can’t wait to read your books except by then you will be Dr. Ameena! 😀 Loved this and that is so sad about Charlotte Bronte.
