You know how there are all these writing advice sites that make the actual writing part either really frustrating or REALLY depressing and in the end you don’t feel “ready” to jump into your story?


That’s not a fluke. It just means you haven’t found your process yet. And putting together pre-writing rituals you LOVE can be part of your process (I get shuddery I’ve-just-seen-a-spide...

Isabelle Eberhardt
“Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere.”
Isabelle Eberhardt, The Nomad: The Diaries of Isabelle Eberhardt

Franz Kafka
“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound or stab us. If the book we're reading doesn't wake us up with a blow to the head, what are we reading for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us. That is my belief.”
Franz Kafka

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

I just happened on your blog and got it excited, and it in my frenzy jumped into adding you on goodreads xDD

You've just made me ridiculously happy with that comment! I've been book bullying people to read this because I absolutely adored it. And it was so unexpected! I hope you have the same reaction. :D
