Let’s Get Creative & Write Books

When people ask me what I’m doing this summer, I tell them I’m being creative. That’s right. I’m spending my summer surrounding myself with inspiration and creativity so that I can flourish as a writer. In addition to a fiction writing class with Gotham Writers Workshop, I’m also rediscovering just how much I love inspirational jpegs. It’s weird how a few words on a nicely designed canvas can make me feel ready to write that novel short story of mine.

I apologize for all of the pictures being a different size. It’s a long weekend and I’m lazy.

    Diana, these are great quotes! My favorite is Maya Angelou’s. And I totally agree with her. 🙂

    I’m the same way with quotes: Reading a quote can be the dose of inspiration (and motivation) I need to write.

    I often forget that writing isn’t exactly easy, and I still get butterflies, at times, staring at a blank page. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one. And it’s nice to have some direction, too. (I love Hemingway’s quote about writing the truest sentence we know.)

    I keep a list of favorite quotes in a notebook. I’ll be including some of these, too. 🙂

      Yeah, it always helps to know you’re not the only one. I sometimes rely on these quotes to remind me that it is hard and that it’s okay to think it’s hard. I think I’ll also add some quotes to my notebook. Good idea! 🙂

    My favorite is the “see what the others dont see.” that is how i feel at work and what make creative people successful. we can conceptualize in our minds what others are unable to see – which of course is great for people like us 🙂

      that’s true. it’s also important to be able to conceptualize and then actually make it a reality, which you are really good at! 🙂
