To Have Done Your Work

“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

You Must Keep Sending Work Out

Great quote from issac asimovone 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
