Neil Gaiman- An Idol to Writing

Since the last few days I have been obsessively reading about writer Neil Gaiman and his writings. I have known about him from some time now but, it has never been at a deeper level. I just knew there was this writer named Neil Gaiman. The reason being, I was too obsessed in reading about the writings and works of my other idols to writing - Ernest Hemingway, Sylvia Plath, Charles Bukowski and Haruki Murakami. So even if wanting to, I could not actually discover more about the writer and the man - Neil Gaiman.

Of late, there has been a magnetic pull happening from this writer and his works. I have been drawn towards Neil Gaiman as if in a trance. And it has been an amazing journey for me. You will be equally drawn to him if you delve into his writings. I am now in a frenzy to read more of his thoughts and his words. In this blog post I would like to share a few of my favorite quotes and writings of Neil Gaiman.

    I thought this quote from Neil was very appropriate for us bloggers.
    “This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done. It's that easy, and that hard.”
