Escrevi o teu nome em todos os lugares
procurei-te sem fim nos dias mais incertos
tive sede de ti na solidão dos bares
e fome do teu corpo em todos os desertos.

Fui soldado e lutei em busca do teu rosto
que vi impresso a fogo em todas as esquinas.
Deixei que me queimasse a dor do sol de Agosto
e mergulhei sem medo em plagas submarinas.

Para te ter venci as longas avenidas
de todas as cidades que ninguém ousou.

E por ti viverei largos anos de vida
na ânsia de te dar tudo o que tenho e sou.
— Torquato da Luz (via palavra-valise)

A few more days and Summer is officially over. But, for most, September 15th is that day when the Sun dies and the skies cry for memories that will remain forever.

We are not a number of years, we are a collection of Summer memories.

starstruck-9 asked: What’s the best writing advice you’ve ever come across?

I never came across with many writing advices, but J. K. Rowling’s example can  work as a perfect advice: after being rejected by many publishers, she ended up richer than the queen (that´s true). So, that faith is essencial - you have to believe in yourself (that’s for YOU as well…).

starstruck-9 asked: If you could write a collaboration with another author, who would it be?

Hum… someone unknown, probably.

starstruck-9 asked: What’s your favorite writing quote?

Hum… never thought about it, really. 

But a good book always has some very good quotes. For example, now, I am reading Blindness, from Saramago (Ensaio sobre a Cegueira in the original) and I am finding several sentences that could be wonderful quotes.

But I guess that the “quote master” would be Fernando Pessoa - almost every sentence he wrote was rather special.

Back, but just for a couple of days. I am not staying.
