Sticky Note: Determination


I have been called off at least a dozen times...to nurse the baby, then into the kitchen to make a chowder for dinner, and now I am at it again, for nothing but deadly determination enables me ever to write: it is rowing against wind and tide...the spirit moves now and I must obey.

- Harriet Beecher Stowe

  4. Wow. I think that's the most inspiring quote about writing I've ever read. When I think about what I have to "fight" against in order to write, compared to this, it's nothing. Truly nothing.

    Thank you,
    Jen
