Perhaps an unwritten book is an even more powerful weapon than one which has been published.
It has a way of filling the air with its menace or its promise, the sweet art of what might have been.
-by Colm Toibin
**Ponders this quote while searching my file, remembering each idea as it came. Hopes for the gift to write them ALL.**
P.S. So tell me, are you on spring break this week (or your kids)? What have you been up to?
I love the quote. It gives my mss hope and purpose. :)
Spring break is over. Easter vacation is over. Yay, the kids are back to school.
I love this. It's funny my blog post tomorrow is on hope. I'm hoping for a lot of things lately.
Spring break is over. Wahoo!! It's back to my schedule.
I hear you, Christine. Hope is what keeps us going!
I wish there was such a thing as Spring Break in corporate America :)
Maddy, right? But I know some take off during this time!
We are in week two of Spring break. And it has been crazy with unexpected things. That's just life I guess.
Perhaps I should have another Easter treat...
We had our spring break a few weeks ago and it was jam packed full of fun activities with the kids.
Kelly, *hands you a treat*
Nah no vacations for me
Spring Break was last week. My house is nice and quiet now ; )
An unpublished book still has the potential to change and grow and develop ... whereas a published book is mostly unchangeable, unless the publisher does another edition. ;)
Spring break is over. And surprisingly, I'm okay with that. While I was on break, I wrote 15k in a brand new WIP. Then Easter Monday, on my last day of vacation, I hit a wall. (Or maybe I was just burnt out.) Anyway, I spent the day sad, mad, and frustrated, convinced my idea sucked after all.
Today I went back to work, spent 7-8 hours away from my writing (technically) but in the back of my mind, stuff was churning.
Broke through the wall this evening.
Sometimes I need to get away from writing, even if that means slogging away at the day job!
Such a wonderful quote.
My spring break starts on Friday. Can't wait!
Enjoy your spring break.
As exciting as a new story is, I'm terrified of those blank pages! But the promise, oh the promise...
Spring Break ended last week for us.
All the kids are back in school as of today, and we parents are looking at work as a chance to rest. Ok, maybe not that much.
I feel like I've been reading blog posts my entire life :-)
