Monday Motivations…for writers! #4

Writers, talk to your grandparents about their life experiences.  If you are a relatively new writer, start by writing about something you know.  Maybe a family story. My mother and her 12 siblings have been an endless reservoir of stories for me.  The length doesn’t matter when you first begin to write.  Be a good storyteller.  If I hear an adult chuckle when reading my children’s books, I know I’ve done a good job. 

How about a story from your Christmas past or holiday season with family?

“A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a
good children’s story in the slightest.” ~C.S. Lewis

 “I dream my paintings, then I paint my dreams.” ~ Van Gogh 
Dream your story and then write it!

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” ~ e  e cummings

“Writing isn’t a calling…it’s a doing.” T. Sugarek
