I Can See It

Monday, August 30, 2010

Ah, yes. The finish line is in sight. Yesterday I had a very productive writing day. One of many in the past week. The end of this book is near and I'm already starting my happy dance. Sure, I'll have to go back and make some pretty major revisions, but to know the bones are there and that I know every in and out of the story is a complete treasure to me. I had hoped to continue the momentum today, but unfortunately I have to go to my day job. No worries. I'll just jot down notes and then start writing again tonight. I so want to finish this one!

And since I'm in such a positive mood, I'd like to share these quotes. I challenge you to share one too!

Oliver Wendell Holmes~~
Man's mind once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimension.

Erma Bombeck~~
It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.

Chinese Proverb~~
If you get up one more time than you fall, you will make it through.

Ferdinand Foch~~
The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire. 

Sheila Graham~~
You can have anything you want if you want it desperately enough. You must want it with an exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world.

Congratulations!!!! You sound so fired up. Love that feeling about a ms.

Here's a quote from a friend:

I'm rolling up my sleeves and attacking 2010 as if it were a feast. I know there's a banquet of opportunity out there for all of us, and there are seats at the table, though they may not be immediately visible. I don't know about you, but I'm hungry. –Amy Atwell

August must be the month of crossing the finish line. WTG! Love the quote, especially the Chinese proverb.

Woohoo!!! Too bad those darn day jobs keep interfering with writers, though.

Beth Ciotta said...

As someone who read what you wrote yesterday, can I just say... YOU ARE ON FIRE!!!!

Burn rubber, Elle. You're almost there!!

Mary Jo,

Here's to hoping September is just as productive!

Elle J Rossi said...


I know, I know. My goal is to someday be able to write full time. Must work that day job to get there though, huh?

Elle J Rossi said...

Thanks, Beth.

I like being on fire! Hoping to create some smoke tonight!
