Quote for the day!

I came across this quote today and it made me smile 🙂

“If at first you succeed, try not to look too astonished.”
                    – Herm Albright
Hmm…it would be nice to get it right first time… 😉

It is true to say that I have been in a rut writing-wise recently.  Lots of ideas floating around but no drive or confidence to get them down on paper.  These writing lulls can be a bit scary really because it feels like I’m at the bottom of a huge mountain without the equipment or know-how to begin the climb.  And at times like these that you need a bit of inspiration to get you through. 

The other day I came across this quote by MAYA ANGELOU which was a big help:

“The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.”

To those of you are on a writing roll – enjoy the ride!

And for those of you stuck in a rut, I say, for what it’s worth – try not to panic and make way for inspiration to find you.
