Writing is like sex . First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money. ----- Virginia Woolf
There’s nothing like the feeling you get when you face a challenge head on; using whatever it takes – blood, sweat, tears…and in some cases even your deepest, darkest fear.
The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first. ----- Jim Morrison
Finding balance in your life in order for your creative energy to flourish as well as your well-being can be as simple as you being thoughtful and attentive or as elaborate as you setting priorities and sticking to a schedule.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. ----- Benjamin Franklin
There have been many times I’m sure where your mind mentally gets stuck in would’ve, could’ve and should’ve as your body continues to go through the motions of everyday life.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. ----- Helen Keller
You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and the creation of different words on a page. Writing comes from reading, and reading is the finest teacher of how to write. ----- Annie Proulx
Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things. ----- Theodore Levitt
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. ----- Jim Rohn
