E. B. White was a celebrated American writer. He contributed to the New Yorker magazine, writing musings, poems and sketches with admirable wit and humor. He also co-authored “The Elements of Style,” with William Strunk, Jr., which has become an essential style guide for writers (and non-writers). He was also a well-known children’s book author with three books to his credit including Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little.
On writing, he says:
Writing is an act of faith,
not a trick of grammar.
What a wonderful way to describe writing. I mean, you always start with a blank page or screen and end up with a story complete with characters. It’s a journey you embark on without always knowing the destination.
Writing is truly an act of faith. I totally agree.
Happy November and have a great week ahead!
