In the series to update myself, There is another find  7 Reasons Inspiration Matters to Writers | WritersDigest.com.

Summary:

We know the common wisdom: Serious writers don’t wait to be inspired. Serious writers roll up their sleeves and get down to the business of writing, just as they would get themselves to work at any 9-to-5 job. “Being inspired” smacks of amateurish, daydreamy passivity, the notion that some supernatural presence must appear before us before the words can flow. And we’re reminded to death of Thomas Edison’s over quoted words about invention demanding 99 percent perspiration and 1 percent inspiration, perhaps not realizing that without that primal 1 percent jolt from the gods, Edison might not have been driven to sweat out the hard work or to cope with a zillion things going wrong.

The Final ‘i’

In News, scribblings on October 7, 2011 at 11:33 pm

The ‘I’ which had identified itself uniquely different from others had a final I – “iQuit“‘
Yes, my dear fellas…with the sad demise of Steve Job, the World of ‘i’ has lost its greatest visionary. True, he was the Thomas Edison of the Modern World.
My tribute to that ‘i’

RIP ‘i”
