Inspiration

>> Monday, February 26, 2007

I really need it today. I had another hole drilled in my bucket.

"Only amateurs say that they write for their own amusement. Writing is not an amusing occupation. It is a combination of ditch-digging, mountain-climbing, treadmill and childbirth. Writing may be interesting, absorbing, exhilarating, racking, relieving. But amusing? Never!"

~~ Edna Ferber

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."
~~ Scott Adams

"All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath."
~~ F. Scott Fitzgerald


"If you did not write every day, the poisons would accumulate and you would begin to die, or act crazy or both -- you must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you."
~~ Ray Bradbury


"The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense."
~~ Tom Clancy

I needed some inspiration today! (I've been perpetually burnt out for a few months now. I guess today isn't new.) Thank you! I needed it!

Glad to hear I'm not the only one. :-)

Great quotes, J. Especially the last one. :)

I love the second to last one.

I especially relate to the Ray Bradbury quote...but they all felt very appropriate for the day.

Hugs, sweetie, for whatever it is!

And Bradbury and Fitzgerald! Two of my favorites. Bradbury has an awe-inspiring road-to-publication story. :-)
