Day 2, and once again, a thank you to Irene at Books and Hot Tea for tagging me.
Here are the rules:
- Thank the person who nominated you
- Post three different quotes in three consecutive days
- Nominate three new bloggers each day
Today I bring you a thoughtful prose from Weaveworld by Clive Barker. The story is magical, and dark, and (at times) convoluted due to its dense use of language. It makes for an extraordinary read though, and you can pull quotes from it for days. So here’s mine:
Nothing is fixed. In and out the shuttle goes, fact and fiction, mind and matter, woven into patterns that may have only this in common: that hidden amongst them is a filigree which will with time become a world.
As the first page of the story, this grandiose introduction invites the reader to fully immerse themselves into the world of storytelling, and to think about what it really means to life into characters. I recommend the book to all writers, and to anyone intrigued by words and how they come together to create meaning.
Today I nominate The Writer’s Inkwell; Nightmares, Daydreams and Imagined Conversations; and HemmingPlay. No pressure, but feel free to join the fun!

Yes , a truly nuanced piece . It does describe creative writing in its essence a smooth switch of different worlds , woven like a new born leaf…..Life imitates art said Oscar Wilde….This is perhaps the opposite….words come alive only if we know to infuse them with it…..
Thank you for this post.
You’re very welcome! And thanks for reading.
