Wednesday Randomness: A few of my favorite things – quotes

favorite things

I’ve loved this quote since middle school, when we first read the poem. It gives me the courage to take my own path, rather than the one that so many others have trodden before me, and to be my own person.

I’m actually the quintessential goody two shoes (any time I attempt to toe out of line, I inevitably get caught), but when I’m writing, I cackle with glee at all the trouble I can get my characters into.

I don’t drink often, but I do like to have a glass or two of wine while I’m writing. When editing, the wine stays put away. Maybe Hemingway knew what he was talking about?

Even though a writer’s life is a fairly solitary existence, with the invention of the Internet, we have found out that we’re not alone and there are MILLIONS of people who love books as much as we do. And there’s always someone around to chat about books with! It’s a lovely feeling – knowing you’re not the only hopeless book worm out there.

Biblical verse. My favorite one. It reminds me that God has a plan for me and to trust in it, no matter what obstacle I’m facing at the time. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Another bible verse. This one literally saved my life. No matter what trouble I’m going through, I know that God has it in His hands and there is no problem too big for Him to handle. This one taught me to “Let go and let God.”

    [...] “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.” “For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” Moving away from one person in particular, these are some of my favorite quotes on books and writing… “Fill your house with stacks of books, in all the crannies and all the nooks.”  – Dr. Seuss “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” – Ernest Hemingway “Make good art.” – Neil Gaiman “Art harder motherfucker.” – Chuck Wendig “I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.” – Douglas Adams “If you don’t see the book you want on the shelf, write it.” – Beverly Cleary And finally, some random awesome quotes… “Quiet people have the loudest minds.” – Stephen King “Do not confuse my bad days as a sign of weakness. Those are actually the days I am fighting the hardest.” Anonymous “What is right is not always popular, and what is popular is not always right.” – Albert Einstein Check out the Wednesday bloggers for their favorite quotes: Jess Jessica Kellie Bronwyn Gwen Kris Paige [...]
