Well said, thanks Summer!

I stumbled on your blog from Jessica Lemmon's page. Love it!

I couldn't agree more with the quote. I'm dealing with a bit of writer's block right now, and everyone tells me the thing to do is just to keep writing. You might not be happy with it at all, but at least you're *doing* something, and not just staring at the screen!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

So true. I'll have to remember this when I get the urge to hide out and avoid any action at all. I get weird like that.

Great quote of Disraeli's. Although I was NOT thinking about revisions today, so thanks for getting me started worrying about those again. :p Revision is my least favorite part of writing!

Oh wells, back to work!
