and SL Hennessy!
Please stop by their blogs and say thank you.
I'm a member of a small writer's group that provides accountability and encouragement for each of its members to reach his or her goal. One way we motivate each other is to email weekly quotes to the group on our assigned day.
This was the one I shared last week. Maybe it will encourage you.
If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives.... But close up a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern.When I read this, I thought of writing... how, at the level of the sentence, it doesn't seem like much... how we work so hard polishing each and every passage till it shines. It's a massive, difficult job, and we're tempted to give up.
- Ursula K. Le Guin
If we stick with it, though, when we finally stand back and see the whole finished thing, it's impressive.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a good week. :)
P.S. I'm chaperoning a school choir event today,
so my return visits will be a tad delayed.
IWSG is the brainchild of Alex J. Cavanaugh. It's a monthly bloghop that offers a safe haven for writers to express their feelings and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. It's also a venue for offering support, both in the form of comments and positive posts. Writers of all kinds are welcome.
We 'meet' the first Wednesday of every month. If you're interested in learning more, click on the link above. And don't be intimidated by the size of the group. We're not expected to visit everyone on the list.
