Brenda Ueland's Wings shop / Andrei Codescu -- Preface, 1983 / Brenda Ueland -- Everybody is talented, original and has something important to say -- "Imagination is the divine body in every man" -- William Blake -- Why a Renaissance nobleman wrote sonnets -- The imagination works slowly and quietly -- "Sooner strangle an infant in its cradle than nurse unacted desires"- William Blake -- "Know that there is often hidden in us a dormant poet, always young and alive"- Alfred de Musset -- Be careless, reckless! Be a lion, be a pirate, when you write -- Why you are not to be discouraged, annihilated, by rejection slips -- People confuse the human and the divine ego -- Why women who do too much house-work should neglect it for their writing -- Microscopic truthfulness -- Art is infection -- The third dimension -- Keep a slovenly, headlong, impulsive, honest diary -- You do not know what is in you -- an inexhaustible fountain of ideas -- On using the imagination -- "The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction"- William Blake -- "He whose face gives no light shall never become a star" -- William Blake.
