Day12 Blogging from A-Z Challenge: L is for Logic


Today's letter is L and I've chosen to write about logic.
Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.
Leonard Nimroy

Logic is the beginning of wisdom....it's also the beginning of any great writer's thought process.
To write well you have to be logical. Your thoughts cannot be a jumbled mess.

Where would we be if our thoughts weren't logical, it we just wrote willy-nilly. If we didn't make sense.
Our words have to be logical, we have to make sense if we want to convey our written words.

A writer has a duty to be a logical person. His thoughts can't run amuck. His thoughts cannot be a jumbled mess.

Logic is wisdom..it's a writer who is wise. It's a writer who can convey onto paper sense.

Think before you write!

I like "think before you write." It used to be just "think before you speak" but now our written words can spread so fast and far that we really do have to think and remember once it's there for all to see, it can't ever be erased.

I definitely need to think before I type. Sometimes my fingers just go with what comes cause there isn't the same filter as there would be when I speak. It's crazy how free I feel when I type out what I want to say!

"Think before you write." I love this. You're absolutely right, writers must be logical in order to produce solid work. And that can be applied to anyone, particularly in today's fast society and 'get it now' needs. The world could use a little slowing down, a little more L is for Logic I think! Great post Deb.

Great advice! I actually do some of my best thinking in the shower before I write. Then I write, put it down for a bit, come back, edit, and write some more.

I loved the post.

I think you've really hit a key element here. Creative energy can be so chaotic, but to be a successful writer you really have harness and give shape to it. There is a logic to the process. Very cool graphics, too!
