Writing for me is as familiar as breathing. I don't think I could stop if I wanted to. So I suppose the best thing about it is when I get paid for doing it--not that I would stop if I didn't!(less)

Write! Write about anything and everything. Write whenever the mood takes you. Write when it doesn't. The words are within and need to be released.

Also, read. Nothing builds a better writer like reading the words of others and then letting your own voice be heard.(less)

I've sort of abandoned this project because I'm way more excited about the dystopian fiction I'm working on now. But I thought I'd share it here because I'm not sure if it'll ever make it any farther than this, and I just love this segment.  Jack's voice has a special place in my heart.

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”

“So many books, so little time.”

Douglas Adams
“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

John Lennon
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
John Lennon
