Living on this planet
together is a shared experience. Every action has some effect on everyone else in some way or another. ~Jenna Gee
“Do not let your fire go out,
spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists… it is real… it is possible… it’s yours.”
~ Ayn Rand

Writing Thoughts for the Week:
1. Make time in your schedule for writing every day – no matter how small the amount of time.
2. When you write, just write. Don’t worry about what you are going to write or how it comes out.
3. Take pleasure in the creative process. Let your imagination have its way with you.
4. Always, always, always, celebrate! You are a writer. Know it!
“It feels so good to have done your work, no matter how it went, or seemed to go. Just spend the time, and then go on with the day; no need for re-hashing anything, or staring back at it. It’ll be there tomorrow, little hands on its hips, little foot tapping, waiting for you to notice it again. You have it to do each day, and that marvelous fact gives meaning to everything else. You know quite clearly what you’re supposed to do. Tomorrow, and tomorrow.”
~ Richard Bausch, American novelist and short story writer
“Write your heart out. Never be ashamed of your subject, and of your passion for your subject. Your ‘forbidden’ passions are likely to be the fuel for your writing.”
~Joyce Carol Oates
Great quote from one of my heroes…Isaac Asimov
“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 Asimov
