We are getting rain, blessed rain! I’m tellin’ ya’, I know for a fact that the ground was rock hard at least eighteen inches down from the drought. So whoo-hoo for the rain!
I find rainy days water me just as they do the land. The rain wraps around the house and closes out the world, both relaxing and invigorating me. I read and write more, dream more, make better starts of ambition on rainy days. Today I have a cold and choose to focus my limited energy on writing on my novel, but I want to share with you bits of wisdom that have come to me today.
Love says: “It’s all right with me if you be you. It’s all right with me if I be me, too. That mean I set you free from the obligations and expectations I might contrive. I set myself free from your unrealistic obligations and expectations, too.” ~William Backus
The trick to finding writing time, then, is to write from love and not with an eye to product. ~Julia Cameron
I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions. ~James Michener
Life can’t ever really defeat a writer who is in love with writing, for life itself is a writer’s lover until death – fascinating, cruel, lavish, warm, cold, treacherous, constant. ~Edna Ferber
Coming at things from a motive of love generally helps things to turn out best. And now I’m off to love myself and the act of writing. ~CurtissAnn
