My motivation comes to me this week courtesy of a favorite author…“Writing sentences is difficult whatever their subject. It is no less difficult to write sentences in a recipe book than in Moby Dick. SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL WRITE MOBY DICK.” Annie Dillard
My daughter put that quote on my office bulletin board to remind me to be more than ordinary. This is a good reminder in an age when everyone has something to say and the shout-outs are happening at lightening speed on social networking sites, as well as the bazillion media channels, web pages, and sky writing; on any surface really.
Muddling though the ordinary is a challenge, maybe it has always been; to find that one piece of writing which sings to me, tells a story in a new way, that is why I keep reading, why I keep writing. If I thought I had found/accomplished perfection, I would stop. So I will continue making sentences. What will you do?
Be extra-ordinary yourself, in whatever you do.
