“-You can’t just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.
-What mood is that?
-Last-minute panic.”

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.”

“Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn’t wait to get to work in the morning:  I wanted to know what I was going to say. ”
