I have been here before and know that the words will eventually come back to me. I turn to Netflix, engross myself in another form of storytelling, watch characters develop, plots turn.(less)

There is nothing more gratifying than seeing a story come together, characters taking shape on the page, even before anyone else has had a chance to read it. Afterwards, working on the manuscript with an editor, the cover with a graphic designer, collaborating on nuances to emphasize in the narrative, only amplifies the thrill. Ultimately, receiving feedback that the story resonated with a reader makes all that toiling in isolation worth the effort.(less)

Maya Angelou
“There were people who went to sleep last night,
poor and rich and white and black,
but they will never wake again.

And those dead folks would give anything at all
for just five minutes of this weather
or ten minutes of plowing.

So you watch yourself about complaining.

What you're supposed to do
when you don't like a thing is change it.
If you can't change it,
change the way you think about it.”
Maya Angelou

“All that you touch
You Change.

All that you Change
Changes you.

The only lasting truth
is Change.

God
is Change.”
