where the writers are
A Quote Worth Remembering

"Finish. The difference between being a writer and being a person of talent is the discipline it takes to apply the seat of your pants to the seat of your chair and finish. Don't talk about doing it. Do it. Finish."
- E.L. Konigsburg

One of my favorite quotes by one of my favorite authors. When I was young, Konigsburg let me dream of running away to live in a museum. As a grown up, she brings me back to the reality of what it takes to make my writing dreams come true.

Discipline in Everything

I think what I've also loved about this quote is that it is so true about anything. I see so many people talk about what they want to do instead of getting up the courage to start it...and then finding the discipline to finish it. Thanks for reading!
