It’s Tuesday, again! The past week has been a fairly busy one, but now it’s onto the next!

Last night I attended a creative writing group session at my local library. As you may have read in my goals, I hope to participate (and dominate) in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year. I’m hoping this group can help propel me towards accomplishing this goal. There were approximately 15 people that joined this month and what I enjoyed the most was how open and helpful everyone was. We went through four pieces written by other group members – some poetry, some nonfiction – and provided our input. Everyone’s work was quite enjoyable and the writing styles were all different which I loved. I look forward to submitting some work of my own soon to get their feedback because it is insightful and uplifting (whether it is a praise or critique). The group’s positivity made me think about (and reminded me of) today’s post. I was nervous to attend the meeting. I felt intimidated a bit since I am at the very beginning of my writing adventure, but in reality, there was nothing to worry about. These were great people. It was a dramatic contrast compared to how my morning had gone (frustration, stress), which leads me to the quote I want to share with you today:


This proclamation resonates with what is probably my favorite quote:

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

-Mae West

I use this quote specifically on my Pinterest bucket list board; however, it is also a thought in the back of my mind on a regular basis. This statement is what I used to help define my goals for 2015 and I will use it to determine my goals in the future.

What quote do you tend to live by?

Happy Tuesday!

  1. NaNoWriMo is so anxiety-ridden for me. I’ve participated on and off for so long and I haven’t gotten past the first week. But this year is going to be different!
    I think…ugh. I need all the positivity I can gather up.
