A Quote by Sol Luckman on character, writing, creativity, creation, co-creation, imagination, manifestation, rhetoric, heart, human, journey, path, imaginal, language, fiction, autobiography, and metafiction

I’m arguably the least real of all my characters, a state of affairs for which I make no apologies, being, indeed, altogether proud of the fact. I am, as it were, the created creating--a paradox, for all its rhetorical trappings, at the beating heart of our shared human journey, and one I invite you to struggle with just as I have while, day in and day out, word by word and line by line, constructing a fictitious autobiography for myself in these pages.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginners luke, herman melville, reality, imagination, consciousness, drummon light, theater, character, protagonist, teacher, tradition, hope diamond, enlightenment, writing, writing light, literary theory, manifesto, and ars p

Once in every generation, if we’re lucky, a character shows up who can teach us about reality because he’s more real than ourselves. Melville called such a character a “Drummond light” after the type of light once used in theaters that was capable of providing illumination in many directions. May one of us create such a character. Better yet, let’s buck tradition and create a string of Drummond lights, each a brilliant facet of the Hope Diamond that is our new fiction. Let’s turn away, once and for all, from old Enlightenment tropes toward a new narrative of Enwritenment. Together let’s write light.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginners luke, imagination, imaginary, imaginal, creativity, creation, co-creation, reality creation, adventure, experience, road of experience, the moment, the power of now, art, expression, self-creation, reinvention, passion

I was sick to the bone of disappearing by degrees, dissolving into library walls, playing my sad little violin of loneliness as time’s invisible ink wrote out my meaningless days even as it erased them. We imaginary people must live the Adventure passionately, set ourselves down with the liquefied marrow of Experience, or else lament the Moment’s passing with a whimper as our unrecorded voices are swallowed by silence.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on regenetics method, sol luckman, conscious healing, dna, dna activation, electrogenetics, wave-genetics, genetic code, genome, blueprint, biology, transcription, writing, composition, dna music, protein assembly, healing, creatio

We went to DNA because it was the obvious choice. DNA contains our genetic code and is the master blueprint for our biology. It literally creates us through a protein-assembly process known as transcription ... To transcribe can be defined as to copy in writing, to produce in written form, or to arrange music for a different instrument. In other words, as the above quote suggests, we come into being, at our molecular level, through a process with striking affinities to composition.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on fiction, robot, corporate world, education, excess, mfa, publishing, publishing house, bottom line, plot, language, awakening, reader, beginners luke, writing, and purpose

If we’re to avoid becoming fiction robots in a corporate world, we must stop adding to our educational excesses, eschew the assembly line of MFAs and bottom-line publishing houses, commit ourselves to a way of writing that engages in a valiant struggle to push the limits of plot and language so as to awaken, not anaesthetize, the reader.

A Quote by Michael Pollan on writing, objectivity, journalists, blogging, and being

So choose your first person deliberately. Too many newspaper first
persons -- and a lot of magazine first persons too -- are written in
the voice of the neutral feature-writer. They're the voice of the
Journalist. That is the least interesting first person you have. Nobody
cares about journalists. They're not normal people. So choose a first
person that draws on a more normal side of your personality. And think
about which one will help you tell the story. You'll see that in very
subtle ways it will shape your point of view and your tone and unlock
interesting things.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginners luke, sol luckman, literary movement, literature, writing, novel, literary theory, literary criticism, ars poetica, inspiration, and humor

Let’s begin a new literary movement. I don’t care what we call it. Let’s start writing novels for people who don't like novels. Because these days who can blame them? You can please all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you can’t please all the people all the time. So let’s at least please ourselves.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beauty, metaphor, truth, real, reality, real world, imagination, consciousness, cocreation, law of attraction, sol luckman, beginners luke, writing, visionary, literary, poetry, and novel

The beauty of a metaphor is it doesn’t have to be real to ring true. The instant a metaphor becomes real it ceases to be a metaphor, which suggests a disconnect between truth and what’s commonly referred to as reality. This is a pivotal point—that the real world probably isn’t what you believe it is, or rather, that it’s precisely what you believe it is—which, if you still don’t get it, I can only trust someday you will.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on theory, literary theory, criticism, soul, literature, beginners luke, sol luckman, art, science, writing, writer, prose, fiction, knowledge, postmodernism, and novel

Theory does everything in its power to remove the living soul of literature, tear its heart out, make of the study of Art a hard-edged Science. Never mind that Art is as far removed from measurement as Science is from love. As writers confronting theory, it’s incumbent on us not to let our prose dry up in that desert, but to allow it to become a desert rose, our prose, flourishing in the heat and sands of what passes for knowledge.
