Here is what I have decided. As a way to get myself more inspired and get back to writing after nearly a week and a half without it, I went through the internet scouring quotes. Quotes always inspire me for whatever reason. I found the most amazing list of quotes regarding books. Reading them, writing them. Needless to say, I wrote last night. A scene that had been giving me trouble for weeks, in fact. 🙂
So I thought I’d share the little nuggets of wisdom. Daily. As a way to get other writers out there inspired. Having a tough day writing? Keep these things in mind. It will make the long, arduous, sometimes seemingly never-ending journey to completion worthwhile.
A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man’s mind can get both provocation and privacy. ~Edward P. Morgan
I think this one is particularly beautiful in its truth. Honestly, where else but in books can we purge notions we would never consider? Books that we read AND write offer us a sort of release. We aren’t afraid to put that moment in a book, even if we might be afraid to live it ourselves. It gives us privacy of soul, stirs us to both tears and laughter, and elicits emotions within us that we take with us forever.
I hope you all find as much enjoyment in this as I will. Plus, it will give us something to discuss rather than having me here just blabbering about nonsense all the time. Which I don’t mind doing, quite frankly. And do not be fooled into thinking I will do it no longer. 😉 I am the MASTER QUEEN of babble.
Have a wonderful Saturday all. Happy Writing!
