Again, it may be said that there are three kinds of authors. First come those who write without thinking. They write from a full memory, from reminiscences; it may be, even straight out of other people’s book. This class is the most numerous. Then come those who do their thinking whilst they are writing. They think in order to write; and there is no lack of them. Last of all come those authors who think before they begin to write. They are rare.

Tokyo-based textile artist Mana Morimoto creates these amazing compositions by carefully arranging embroidery threads on pictures. The resulting images find their place outside of traditional notions of arts and crafts. Thereby her artistic work has a simple origin: ‘I started working with threads because I wasn’t happy with my life. I was at a point where I felt like I needed to start creating something with my hands. I find stitching and weaving therapeutic and I feel like I have finally found something I’m good at doing and want to continue doing.’ It began with an old tin box full of beads and embroidery treads collected when she was a child. Later she embellished a friend’s painting with her needle works, embroidered some friends’ photos, magazine pages, record covers, gratings, tickets stub and concert tickets. Today she is weaving on a loom, creating terrific and magical works.

If you write just about one type of person, not only is that boring, not only does that deprive people of other points of view, it is also just false. It’s not what the world looks like. You should try to write about the world that’s there, because that’s the interesting one.

Joseph Fink, who’s p good at writing, I think. (from this week’s Philadelphia Weekly)

Yes. This.
