Today is a hot and bright Monday when Fall should be creeping in but instead Summer is stretching her wings over us. Today, I'm thinking about late bloomers, slow starters, about the seasons coming when they please, and about my own slow process of writing, editing, trusting my stories, myself, and the surroundings which I thought were one thing - Fall, but in fact are another - Summer.
Why am I inside the apartment missing out on the sun, trying to put words down, make up stories, record memories and make something for others out of fragments from myself? Other writers struggle too (it's a cliche), but all professions have inherent struggles and most of us question our jobs, our choices, our ambitions at some point. Then we either quit and try something new or we put our heads down and sweat it out until the frustrations pass.
Today, I'd like to give you some humorous, truthful, and memorable quotes from writers who were considered successful, inspirational, even brilliant. Even those at the top of their game struggled.
