Become original without noticing

Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.

C. S. Lewis (1898 โ€“ 1963)

    Don’t over think it too much or try too hard to be different. Write your truth and trust your instincts.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

      1. Thanks very much David, I like the quote! We try so hard sometimes to be different and original and lose something of ourselves in the process.
