My summer semester concluded yesterday and I feel myself taking a long deep breath. The class was good, but I need a break. Just two short weeks and then it is back into the grind…
However, I combed through some of my old papers and I found two inspirational quotes I had forgotten about. I’ll share them here as a way to keep pushing myself. I hope you like them too.
1) “I think that if art is not made then the world will go on, but once art is created, it sort of connects you with just about everybody else who’s around.” — Edward P. Jones
2) “Write about what you love and write about what scares you… If you’re writing about what you love, you might have stories that are perfectly resolved and quite happy. If you’re writing about what scares you, you may sometimes have a story that’s not quite resolved. If you write about what you love and if what you love scares you, then you may have the ‘Great American Novel’.” — Greg Bear
