Thought for the Day

There are always reasons not to write. They appear as wantonly as toadstools after the rain. Entertaining those reasons even for a split second is the path to uncreativity. Write, even if you have a twinge, a doubt, a fear, a block, a noisy neighbor, a sick cat, thirteen unpublished stories, and a painful boil. Write, even if you aren’t sure. Come to Paris, even if you don’t speak French.

  1. I did just that…went to Paris not speaking a word of French…other than omelette and si vous plait and oui and various other french words that have worked their way into everyday use in english!
