Here are some thought-provoking quotes from Albert Einstein that can help you in pursuing your career as a writer.
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
Each of us has our own gift. The challenge is to figure out what “genius” waits within you. Many novice writers take a different road than the one they’re destined for, striving to embody someone else’s form of genius. When they fail, they wind up walking that same path again rather than embracing their authentic genius.
What is Einstein implying here? Identify what your real talent is; discover your uniqueness; know your real purpose in the writing world; push yourself to establish a career that fits your character and passion. Understand what you really love writing about and you will realize your personal brand of genius.
“Paper is to write things down that we need to remember. Our brains are used to think.”
The genius already said it: use the tools (pen and paper) to write down your notes, ideas, phrases, etc. Then your brain can get back to creating.
