I’ve hit a bump in the road the last couple of weeks. Remember how I set a goal to finish my WIP by the end of January?
Yeah, it didn’t so much happen.
Which isn’t a big deal. It was a self-imposed deadline, so I’m not gonna worry about.
What is a big deal is the doubt and fear to which I’ve succumbed the last few weeks. That have balked me from writing.
(I truly don’t believe in writer’s block, and I’m not giving myself a free pass on this one. But it’s happened, and it is what it is.)
Anyhow, I need to get back on it! It’s been easier lately to paint the dreaded beadboard in my kitchen (which is now done, huzzah!), then open Scrivener. (I totally did open Scrivener this weekend, but it terrified me too much. I ran screaming to the fridge, pulled out my brush, and frantically painted.)
I had to pull up my Pinterest account just now to look for a quote, and came across all kinds of inspiring quotes that are making me feel happy and ready. I will write today.
So here are some of the ones I really love! (Or are just ringing especially true today.)
“Creativity takes courage.” -Henri Matisse
She believed she could so she did.
“Nothing great has been and nothing great can be accomplished without passion.” -G.W.F. Hegel
Today is going to be bloody a-maz-ing. Oh, how I love todays
Whenever I get sad I stop being sad and start being awesome.
So, a little pick-me-up for myself and hopefully for you as well! (Although, let’s be honest, it’s Friday! And who isn’t at least a little happy just by default?)
What are some quotes/mantras you use for inspiration?
