This morning my spouse sent me a short video, a collection of photos of his adoptive father, who has passed away several years ago. The background song was playing made me broken-hearted: without I realized it, I have also missed him a lot. The morning suddenly felt gloomy. He was a very kind-hearted person back then, he was our role model, and we were devastated when he has gone forever.
It was 6.30, and the weather was colder than usual. I then peek out the window, the thick fog covered the morning, while the sun in the east had risen; It looked reddish round, the center was covered with clouds, reminding me of a painting of a sunset on the beach. I went outside to the balcony to enjoy it more clearly, then back inside after a few moments.
The gloomy feeling I felt shouldn’t be spoiling my day, thou. Today I will have a great day, and I will start my day by writing. I skipped writing yesterday, and I shouldn’t be doing it too often, and this morning I need a writing quote to make me keep going.
Here are some writing quotes that get me and are fitting to how I feel at the moment.
“I write to discover what I know.” —Flannery O’Connor
“Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.”
— William Faulkner
“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”
— Ernest Hemingway
“You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.”
― Octavia E. Butler
“If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word.”
— Margaret Atwood
“You fail only if you stop writing.” — Ray Bradbury
