Quickly Quotable #3

Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.

C. S. Lewis
English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 – 1963)

    I suspect he’s right ~ when we just want to share our “truth” with the world . . . we look within to the source of creation.

    If we are striving for originality, we are always looking around to make sure that our thoughts are unique. That outward focus is bound to catch a few dust mites from other writers.

    Thanks!

  2. Wonderful quote, Jodi, and one I can wholeheartedly agree with.

    The internal navigation of your blog — things like the “see last week’s quote” link — is always impressive. Is there a source for your WordPress wisdom, or do you just sort of figure it out as you go along?

    I just figure it out as I go. If I see something that I like on another blog, whether it is am item in a sidebar or a way to navigate the page, I find a way to use it. Occasionally the WordPress help comes in handy. All the internal links are simple hyperlinks that I cut and paste together. There is a widget or other piece of coding that will automatically direct the reader to the previous and next posts in a series, I haven’t found it yet but I’ll add it when I do.
