A Little Reminder From Me To You

Everything will work out even if it doesn’t at first.

Quotes · Writing

Forget Writing, Get Designing

You can’t get much done in life if you only work on days when you feel good.

Forget about being a writer. I should be a designer. And a photographer.

The quote isn’t mine. The terrible photo is. So is the questionable design of the above graphic.

I’m sure that was quite obvious though.

I’ll stick to writing. Don’t worry.

Three Days, Three Quotes: Challenge (Part 3)

I was nominated by Charles, GalitHannah, and Amy.

If you missed part one, check it out here.

If you want to see part two, here you go.

Rules:

  • Post one quote a day for three days (from others or your own).
  • Nominate three other bloggers to participate per post.
  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.

I’m taking some old writing tips from myself so it isn’t really stealing. It’s recycling. The environment can thank me later.

You can find daily (if I don’t forget) writing tips on my Facebook and my Twitter.

I say this all the time:

You cannot rush creativity.

Nominations: 

  • Y
  • O
  • U

I know, I know. I said the following in my first post of this series:

“I’ll try to follow these rules. No guarantees though.”

The rebel in me is nominating anyone and everyone who wants to partake in sharing quotes. Inclusiveness should be my middle name.

That’s all, folks. I’ll be back to my usual silliness tomorrow.

Three Days, Three Quotes: Challenge (Part 1)

I was nominated by Charles, GalitHannah, and Amy. Thank you all.

Go follow them if you aren’t already. They are awesome bloggers and fantastic individuals.

As you can see, I’ve been procrastinating greatly on these challenges.

Cheers to overdue blog posts. It’s starting to become my style.

Rules:

  • Post one quote a day for three days (from others or your own).
  • Nominate three other bloggers to participate per post.
  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.

I’ll try to follow these rules. No guarantees though.

I’m taking some old writing tips from myself so it isn’t really stealing. It’s recycling.

You can find daily (if I don’t mess up) writing tips on my Facebook and my Twitter.

Keeping with the focus of my blog, my quote/tip/advice is:

When criticizing the work, never criticize the writer.

Nominations: 

Do check out their wonderful blogs.

Don’t feel rushed. Don’t feel obligated.

If you’ve been nominated and completed this challenge already, blame me for not looking into it or remembering.

Because it doesn’t explicitly say that I need to let my nominees know I’ve tagged them, I’m not going to let them know. One, I’m lazy. Two, I love stumbling across a blogger who tagged me in a post without telling me. Three, I am a bit pressed for time these days.

Those are my excuses. Don’t steal them.

Writing

Oh, The Irony

Out of all my classes, I’m most worried for English and Writer’s Craft.

Which isn’t anything special unless you take into account the following:

  • I claim to be an aspiring writer. Not the I aspire to write kind. But the I aspire to be a better writer than I was yesterday; hence I write every day kind.
  • I blog almost every day. I can probably count the number of days I didn’t on two hands.
  • I read anything and everything. Good, bad, contemporary, classic, etc.
  • I love words. Almost as much as I love breathing. Almost.
  • I’m surrounded by newspapers, books, notebooks. You name it.

So why the worry or concern? Thomas Mann said it best…

“A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.”
