“I’ve always felt that the cool thing about being a writer is that all you need is paper to do the job. The best thing to further what you do is write and read all you can. Read both stuff you like to see why its good and read bad to see how to fix. Doing that will help you see and solve problems in your own writing. 

“But I think the biggest advice I can offer is don’t just pick one story and stop, write as much as you can, as many stories as you can. The best thing about being a writer is, a writer’s craft is nearly perfect because a writer can go anywhere and do his craft.”

Dwayne McDuffie, writer, creator of worlds, legend.

Happy birthday, Maestro. We still miss you five years later.

Still fighting down here.

Today, the anniversary of Leonardo’s birth, one of the greatest minds of all times.

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was born April 15, 1452 in Anchiano, near Vinci, Italy, and died May 2, 1519 in Cloux, France.

Leonardo’s illegitimate standing kept him from receiving a good education and excluded him from the most lucrative occupations. However, such limitations never hindered (and perhaps even fueled) da Vinci’s desire for knowledge and great ambition.

Was an Italian polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist and writer, and became a skilled practitioner in most of them.

A man with a knowledge way ahead of his time, Leonardo’s studies in science, anatomy and engineering are as impressive and innovative as his artistic work, and were recorded in his diaries and notebooks, which include 13,000 pages of text and illustrations, combining art and natural philosophy (previous of modern science.)

Often described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of “unquenchable curiosity” and “feverishly inventive imagination”.

Leonardo da Vinci had an unlimited desire for knowledge, and visual perception was the main tool he used in pursuit of that knowledge. Leonardo believed that only the faculty of sight allowed you to take in experience immediately, correctly, and with certainty.

“There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, those who do not see.”
“All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions.”

-Leonardo

Xavi is eternal. Even when he is not at his very best level physically, he plays a kind of football that gives oxygen to a team, play, speed. It makes me sad to think that I won’t be able to watch Xavi [in Europe] for more time. He’ll always have that level. He is football. He is one of those players that has made Barcelona what it is today”
