It’s easy to get out of the habit of blogging. I’ve really been a slacker, haven’t I? In more ways than one. Hopefully, that will change with the first of the new year. Yes, I’m still alive, and tomorrow I MUST finish up my Christmas shopping–whether I want to or not.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes. Anything here you can relate to?
The author or speaker from whom you learn the most is not the one who teaches you something you didn’t know before, but the one who helps you take a truth with which you have quietly struggled, give it expression, and speak it clearly and boldly. ~Oswald Chambers
You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you’re working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success–but only if you persist. ~Isaac Asimo
The more we fear starting a project, the more difficult the project becomes in our mind. This is self-defeating. ~Rob Parnell
Sometimes, when it’s going badly, she wonders if what she believes to be a love of the written word is really just a fetish for stationary. The true writer, the born writer, will scribble words on scraps of litter, the back of a bus ticket, on the wall of a cell. ~David Nicholls
Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good. ~William Faulkner
