Motivational Monday

I found this little Motivational Monday gem:

"Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking." William B. Sprague

This is especially important because as tough as times are right now, one's perfect opportunity to strike may not present itself. Therefore, everyone must forge their own way and create the fire by striking again and again even if there is no immediate path present.

So, think to yourselves, what fire will you create that is not already there? What path will you forge that is not already marked?

Motivational Monday

As I have begun my journey through NaNo WriMo, writing a 50,000 word steamy romance under the name Scott Noir in 30 days... (I know, phew!!) I found a motivational nugget to help push, pull and cajole...

The best way out is always through.
Robert Frost

It is so true. Now don't get me wrong, I need no external motivation to see myself through this project. I could easily sequester myself for an entire month and exist on nothing save words... but I do have a family and a day job, so that's not likely. But I figured Mr. Frost's wisdom would be quite appropriate. I hope you find it motivational as I have.
