The Object of Pursuit of an Inner-Saboteur

Leaving the Nest…

Filed under: quotes — Monika Thornton @ 17:03

I have been away from my blog, but not from my writing. My “Creative Writing” course is nearing the end and I know I’m going to feel lost without it. I was going to enroll on another course, but I think that it’s best to throw myself into deep water and deal with the consequences later. So, I’m going to write in English until I feel confident and happy with the final product (Polish is my native language). That’s my mid-year resolution!

Here’s a quote I feel is appropriate for this post as it illustrates my state of mind and it’s also very inspiring:

“Once I got started I wanted the life of a writer so fiercely that nothing could stop me. I wanted the intensity, the sense of aliveness that came from writing … My life is worth living when I’ve written a good paragraph.”

    • Hi Sophie, so nice to hear from you 🙂 The plan is to finish my novel (in Polish, about 70% done already, but the editing process is going to take AGES, isn’t it?) and I’m looking for a good photography course…What have you been up to?
