Monday Writer's Motivation: Observation...so much of fiction is a reflection of what we see, hear and experience. "There is only one trait that marks the writer. He is always watching." (Morley Callaghan) Because writing is a fairly solitary endeavor, we tend to migrate to coffeehouses, libraries and park benches to absorb the nuances of ordinary life...and create.

A sylvan glade in the middle of a restless, chaotic city...a brief glimpse of possibility...the writer either embraces or rejects. Yet even in our rejection, we discreetly catalog the experience for use another time...memories, like forgotten photographs...the detritus of our lives.

Friday's Meditation Moment: "What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us." (Henry David Thoreau)
If you spend your life mourning over what you haven't accomplished as a writer, or longing for a public success when you've finished...you've wasted the best part of your writing life...the creative muse lives in the moment...this is what should drive you. Embrace the day...make it #agoodwritingday ... but don't forget to dream. #whyiwrite #writersofinstagram #aroompfonesown #nanowrimo #amreading #amwriting #writersgarden #writingmaps #writingmotivation #writingmuse #writersjourney #writerscommunity #writersdigestconference #bookstagram #books #whatinspiresyou #whatisawtoday #californiadreaming #californiaphotographer #winecountrywriter #napavalleywriters #napa #lakeberryessa #california #Natureshots #greatoutdoors #natgeo #landscapephotography #imageastext
