Don't...Day 9

"D" is for Don't

 A great reminder, just sent from my sister,
penned by another great friend of writers, Anne Lamott,
as I mull, pencil chew, and begin jotting down
words and images for the next assignment:

Don't dream of getting published--
dream of writing a beautiful book, 
whose existence is helpful,
for its compassion, truth, humor.

~ Anne Lamott

Isn't this great?
It puts the horse back in front of the cart
and gives us eyes to see the right thing.


This is my new life and I'm writing to find the right words

  1. Brenda, I follow Anne Lamott on Twitter precisely to receive these kinds of wisdom nuggets. She is so encouraging and speaks from hard experience, so it's worth listening to her when she talks about writing. You have encouraged me today too!

  2. Brenda,
    I love your "...I'm writing to find the right words."!!
