That’s what I was feeling when reading some of these inspiring quotes every day. Today’s quote though, is one I can understand and relate to. Not that I am doing that many first drafts…but a lot of rejecting going on I in my head. Do I have the guts to be a writer, let alone the skill? I know, I know- baby steps first. I am inspired by you fellow bloggers – such skill, vocabulary and syntax. Practice makes perfect….
It reminds of a comment from my eighth grade teacher nun. At that age I was writing up a storm: diaries, poems, notes and letters. It was after I had written a great essay about the history of shoes from a shoes point of view. Remember this was the 60s, not much for writing instruction – just write. Well the next week half the class had written papers from different point of views. Instead of being pleased, I felt like they had stole my thunder. This is when Sister Xavier told me “not to hide my light under a basket!” My first example of model writing.
