QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Friday, Dec. 13, 2019

By
Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

Hi Everyone!  According to my world and the way I believe -- we are here
'On Mission,' - each with a sacred contract to a Higher Source to aid and
help humanity in every way we can.  And if we realize this we help each
other fulfill these missions.  In the course of this plan, our missions differ;
for instance, we have our genius gifted, inventive, intellectual and creative
minds;  
we have  musical, mathematical, spiritual, philosophical minds;
our poets 
and writers...  

Today I have looked into quotes on being a writer.  I have at times wondered
the mind of a writer.  In fact many times when Roy Kelley, who has a love and appreciation for a good book, is recommending a special novel, I check out the
title along with an accompanying photo of the author and I just w-o-n-d-e-r  
and admire the mind of such a person.  How blessed is that person to be able 
to write creatively.  And then I wonder about my own talents and gifts an
start 
working again on my own mission.                                                Jane
                                                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  

"The first draft is just you telling yourself the story."            ~Terry Pratchett


"You don't start out writing good stuff.  You start out writing crap and
thinking it's good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it.
That's why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence."
                                                                                                   ~Octavia E. Butler
 
"You can always edit a bad page.  You can't edit a blank page."
                                                                                                          ~ Jodi Picoult

"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality
of his mind is written large in his works."                                     ~Virginia Woolf

"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing
guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.  The worst enemy to creativity
is self-doubt."                                                                                 ~Sylvia Plath


"Everybody walks past a thousand story ideas every day.  The good writers
are the ones who see five or six of them.  Most people don't see them."
                                                                                                    ~Orson Scott


"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
                                                                                                      ~Maya Angelou

"Don't bend; don't water it down;  don't try to make it logical; don't edit 
your own soul according to the fashion.  Rather, follow your most intense
obsessions mercilessly."                                                           ~Franz Kafka

"I shake off everything as I write;  my sorrows disappear, my courage
is reborn."                                                                                        ~Ann Frank

"A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit."             
                                                                                                      ~Richard Bach

"People say,''What advice do you have for people who want to be writers?
I say, they don't really need advice, they know they want to be writers, and
they're gonna do it.  Those people who know that they really want to do
this and are cut out for it, they know it."                                         ~R.L. Stine

"I believe myself that a good writer doesn't really need to be told anything,
except to keep at it."                                                               ~Chinua Achet

"To survive, you must tell stories."                                              ~Umberto Eco

"The Six Golden Rules of Writing: Read, Read, Read and Write, Write, Write."
                                                                                                ~Earnest Gaines

Hi San Jose, CA  Michelle Cherie CarrCrowe Just Call...408-252-8900   from Orlando, Fl.   Do you like writing?  Do you have an interest in being a published writer or are you already published?  I agree with your choice of quotes:  do not give up or quit, but be persistent.  I would love to get a couple books I have stuck in my head out there on paper.  I'm working on it.  Perhaps why I included the Maya Angelou quote...'agony.'

Morning Jane.

When I first started my mind was blank, didn't know what to write about I just started, so this one caught my attention.

"You can always edit a bad page.  You can't edit a blank page."

Myrl Jeffcoat,   happy Saturday to you and I am wishing for you a wonderful, just delightful day.  Really true, huh, how many 'stories' each of us 'walk past' each day of our life.  I just would like to tell you again how beautiful - gorgeous- you looked on your Thanksgiving Day photo.  Fantastic shot of the table, too!
