Quote of the day

"The muscles of writing are not so visible, but they are just as powerful: determination, attention, curiosity, a passionate heart." --Natalie Goldberg

  2. Marja, I think because I'm a journalist, I'm naturally curious about everything. But when I write fiction, I'm not sure it's as important as the other three (determination, attention and a passionate heart). I will have to give this some thought. Have a great day, Marja:)

  3. Great quote. I can see you'd have to be curious to be a journalist Buffy. I think curiosity could help with finding ideas for stories, scenes, etc. Determination is definitely a must.

  4. I need to work on the 'attention' part. I haven't been attending to my writing at all.
