On Writing

There is much that can inspire our love for writing. As writers, we can: create worlds, bring our characters to life, experience the joy of words, reveal and curate ideas, plot our dreams, take up a vorpal sword against the things we hate, and have our sheer egoism satisfied.

As J. K. Rawlings’s wonderful character Snape said about potions, creative writing can:

“teach you to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death.”

On books and Writing publishes submitted work from members. including short stories, guest blogs and articles on writing into an ON Writing Anthology. It also links to blogs books and other resources
