Hi everyone. Happy new week. There has been an interesting chat thread in my book group and we have been discussing our creative mindset. It seems that the majority of the writers there have extreme moments of self-doubt when they are around halfway through their books and they sometimes have to walk away from their manuscripts for a while. Luckily most authors seem to bounce back and then love their work the next time they do a read through, but they had interesting ways to get through it. Some try knitting, writing poems, some bribe themselves with chocolate treats, or gifts! Others have quotes in their writing spaces to remind them to keep up the good work. So I thought I’d jot down a few quotes here about not giving up and I will post some randomly on my blog for that extra little boost.
‘The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.’ – Walt Disney.
‘Focus on being productive instead of busy.’ – Tim Ferriss.
‘Good things happen when you set your priorities straight.’ – Scott Caan.
‘Give them quality. That’s the best kind of advertising.’ – Milton Hershey.
‘Content is king, but distribution is queen and she wears the pants.’ – Jonathan Perelman.
Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.’ – Robert Collier.
