I need a nice kick this week it seems. Reading a ton is great, but it really knocks out a lot of my writing time. Yes, reading is important, but not if I don't write as well. I get so wrapped up in these worlds I can't make myself put them down, so I fly through a book every two days and nary a thousand words added to my manuscript in a week!
So, today is about inspiration to kick it into high gear.
"Believe in yourself and in your own voice, because there will be
times in this business when you will be the only one who does. Take
heart from the knowledge that an author with a strong voice will
often have trouble at the start of his or her career because strong,
distinctive voices sometimes make editors nervous. But in the end,
only the strong survive."- Jayne Ann Krentz
"The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you've got to put up with the rain."- Dolly Parton
"In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."- Albert Einstein
“You don't find time to write. You make time. It's my job.”- Nora Roberts
"If we don't risk it all, we may as well not write at all."- Anne Stuart
I do hope that I have provided you with a bit of inspiration. I know I'm feeling better myself. Now, off to brave the neverland of my very own creation where nothing can stop me.
