Quotes

If you have built castles in the air . . .

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; . . . If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” — Henry Thoreau, Walden or Life In the Woods

Marlene’s Musings:  In order to advance confidently as a writer. . . you need to think like a person who is in the business of writing.  It’s one thing to be a writer, it’s another thing to be a published author.  And if you don’t care about being published. . . then I hope you are enjoying your writing.

CastleBuild those castles with word pictures, include a moat, a forlorn prince or princess, a formidable problem to overcome.  Throw in a fire-breathing dragon, a jealous cousin. . . Just Write!
