A Little Inspiration

I’m not really an inspirational quote person. Yes, I appreciate them and many make me smile. Lots of times I think they’re cool or interesting or actually as inspirational as promised. I hear them, think I need to remember that and then I promptly forget most of them.

There are people who can call up a quote at the exact right time and put it out there. I’m generally not one of those people. But as I stumble toward a deadline next week – and stumble is the right word because this book is not going on the page easily – I came across this quote. It struck me as a good reminder, so I thought I’d share it:

The sentiment is great and true as is. The underlying principle is really the point for me: writing should be, is supposed to be, hard. Someone said that to me last week. He joked about this writing gig being soooo easy and we both chuckled. While it’s not digging ditches or coal mining or any other highly dangerous and physically taxing job, if it’s always easy you might not be pushing the boundaries quite hard enough.

Be Sociable, Share!

    Love the quote, and think it’s very true. Another one you might like right about now is from Robert Frost. “Freedom is being Bold.”

    I keep this one in front of my computer right now to remind me to be bold with my writing, and not wimp out. ;)

    Good Luck with the deadline.

    I love quotes HelenKay, so thanks for sharing this one.

    I actually usually use them in my email signature all the time. Except for right now, because currently, I have a short story in a newly published anthology of true love stories, and I’m promoting the book. If anyone is interested, it’s called Falling In Love With You, by OakTara publishing. http://store.oaktara.com/books/anthology/falling-in-love-with-you.html

    But normally, yes, I use quotes all the time.

    Renee-Ann :)

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content
    I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d
    truly appreciate it.

    naturally like your web-site however you have to test the spelling on several of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the
    truth nevertheless I’ll certainly come back again.

    This design is spectacular! You most certainly know
    how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was
    almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Bless you!
