Oliver Sacks on ‘The Act of Writing’

OTM-Cover-Mod-194x300“The act of writing is an integral part of my mental life; ideas emerge, are shaped, in the act of writing… a special, indispensable form of talking to myself.”

I love this quote from Oliver Sacks. It’s nice to go back to this on days when “the act of writing” is just kicking your ass. Most of us love writing, I think, because it helps us, forces us, to sort out our own thoughts. That’s why it’s so magical.

For more inspiring Oliver Sacks, check out this great post on Brain Pickings where I found this quote.
