I hope this post finds you all inspired and invigorated! But if not, or you could use a little more magic in your life, I have some quotes to share that help inspire me and push me forward.
“Where will wants not, a way opens.” – Eowyn alias Dernhelm, in The Lord of the Rings (the books, of course)
Remember, it takes work to achieve your dreams, but as Eowyn says, where will wants not, a way opens. Keep going!
“It’s time to see what I can do!” – Let It Go, by Idina Menzel
Let it go! Let it rip! See what happens. You never know what your characters might do. You might be stunned by the crazy (and crazy amazing) things that came out of YOUR brain.
“Do or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda, in Star Wars
I actually had this as one of my inspirational quotes last year, and I watched Star Wars for the first time last month. 🙂
“You can do it, if you try!” – Fred Penner’s song You Can Do It, If You Try
I had to put this one with the one before it. 🙂
“You wish and you dream with all your little heart. But you remember, Tiana, that that old star can only take you part of the way. You’ve got to help it along with some hard work of your own and then… you can do anything you set your mind to. Just promise your daddy one thing: that you will never ever lose sight of what is really important.” – Princess and the Frog
Writing is just writing, after all. And NaNoWriMo is just NaNoWriMo. There are things in your life that are far more important. Pursue your dreams, but don’t lose sight of the real treasure in life.
We’re in the last lap for NaNoWriMo, but the journey goes beyond this month! Glad I could catch the ride with you, folks! See ya on the other end (and hopefully before). 🙂
(Bonus quote) “Remember, if all seems lost, there’s no shame in surrender.” – How To Have A Snowball Fight (Tinkerbell short)
If things come up in your life and you’re spread too thin and something needs to go so you can focus on the important stuff, it’s okay to say no to NaNoWriMo. 😉 Have a great one!
