Even if it's garbage. I can always go back and edit or delete. "Nothing you read was written; it was re-written." Writer's block can come when you're too demanding of yourself for perfection right out of the gate. Punching through that wall of writer's block by writing anyway, you're telling your brain "it's creativity time whether you like it or not." That's when magic happens.(less)

A close second is writing allows me to explore true principles and how they would function in realities different from my own. Many times, when stories do this, it helps us to see our own reality in a new way, and can often lead to solutions we'd never before considered.(less)

How To Impress Your Lover On Valentine’s Day

valentine


Flowers? No.


Chocolates? Cliche.


A store bought card? Pack your bags.


The one thing that will “Wow” and “Wooo” your loved one on Valentine’s day– better yet, any day when an overt demonstration of affection is not expected–does not require talent, or even money. It just requires the heart.


Memories are funny things. Our brains choose to remember some things while forgetting others. I always rememb

“Not in order to justify, but simply in order to explain my lack of consistency, I say: Look at my present life and then at my former life, and you will see that I do attempt to carry them out. It is true that I have not fulfilled one thousandth part of them [Christian precepts], and I am ashamed of this, but I have failed to fulfill them not because I did not wish to, but because I was unable to. Teach me how to escape from the net of temptations that surrounds me, help me and I will fulfill them; even without help I wish and hope to fulfill them.

Attack me, I do this myself, but attack me rather than the path I follow and which I point out to anyone who asks me where I think it lies. If I know the way home and am walking along it drunkenly, is it any less the right way because I am staggering from side to side! If it is not the right way, then show me another way; but if I stagger and lose the way, you must help me, you must keep me on the true path, just as I am ready to support you.

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”

I don't read any book that doesn't engage me right away, or makes me care about the characters. With that said, it was impossible not to become deeply involved with the characters of Maiden, and care about their personal journey. When I read a book, ...more
