Writing Motivation

What better time to catch up on writing then a cold winter three-day weekend! Need some motivation? Here’s a great quote pulled from an essay by Carl Sandburg. I keep it, along with other quotes and bits of poems, on a bulletin board above where I write. They inspire and console, depending on how the writing is going that day. This is one of my favorites…

“You are vivid. Go on so. It will cost…but go on. Work hard…they all do when they are any good at all. The sense of futility will ride you often…and this is not too bad, for usually it means a requisite humility is operating. When you are too sure you are good then pray God help your vain little heart. Write much. Write everyday. Lay the pieces by. See what happens later.”

Be vivid. Keep writing…
