"I get up every morning determined
both to change the world
and to have one hell of a good time.
This makes planning the day difficult." (E.B. White)
Eat it first, figure out what it was later! Great rule for writing (not so good for eating... luckily Lucy had a cast iron stomach!).Thanks, Sara!Erica
That is a really good rule for me! I hate keeping a messy journal and it has stopped me writing a bunch of times. I am going to have to give up that desire for a good looking journal and have more patience with myself. Thanks for posting this today!
Thanks for linking to your two earlier posts, and to Erica's site. I always tell myself that my messiness is a sign of creativity, nice to know I might be right! I use those spiral notebooks, too, because it feels like it's okay to make a mess in them. Maybe one day I'll be confident enough in my writing and my process to get one of those beautiful journals and totally trash it.
