I was tired and thought it was a quote about that, so I just threw it up there 🙂 – I am aware of my tendency to use said tense but my blogging rule is not to stress about them, let them go. (No, it wasn’t about long, run on sentences lol.) Of course there is a new light shining on the quote with your comment this morning! 🙂 Writing on the blog is a creative process and for me it is a painful one. I don’t consider myself creative – except with ideas which usually stay inside my head. I find this blog site to be a nice place to expand my horizons.

Either way, I love it. 🙂 Reply ↓ Carrie Rubin March 11, 2013 • 21:31 I often quote this one (though I see I have been quoting it wrong…), because I so understand it. I love the thought of writing; I love working through the finished product; I even love editing; but sometimes the initial creative part is the most difficult, because the amount of energy required is high. But once I’m into it, there’s no place else I’d rather be. It’s a funny paradox, that’s for sure. Reply ↓ Thoughts, ideas, questions? - Love to know what is on your mind!
