Reblog – Today’s Quote

“Don’t waste your energy trying to change opinions … Do your thing, and don’t care if they like it.” ~ Tina Fey ~

Today’s Quote

I came across this quote on Chateau Cherie’s blog and I love it.

It’s hard to change an already made-up mind. It’s harder when it has to do with a group of people who share the same opinion different from what you have in mind. If you are sure your idea is a better one, do not stress yourself trying to get them to follow your great idea. Go ahead and do what you think is good. You must have known by now that it’s hard to be the odd one out. But there is nothing wrong with that, going in a different direction when everyone is going in the wrong direction shows you’re out for succees.

Hope you are having a great moment.

Labour

On the path of endless labour,

Dreams fill beings with worth.

The dawn of a beautiful day,

Brings to mind all that is lost.

Preoccupied hearts,

Dream of a better day,

A day better than days gone,

The intents for a better chance,

And thoughts of amazing prospects,

The mind keeps brisk.

Rest delays in the pit of slight,

Shoved aside and cast down.

Idleness is a giant monster,

Battered, beaten and laid to rest.

Lethargy goes into the deep,

Into pitch dark of nothingness.

Success rises like the sun,

And keeps shining with labour,

Like a never setting sun.

Take Your Time, Think Over Your Answers As If Your Future Depends On It. Somehow It Does!

I love what Jesus did when the Pharisees and the Herodians brought him the issue of paying of tax to the emperor, whether it is right or wrong. Jesus told them to bring him a coin. As they went about looking for the coin, I assume Jesus used that time to think of the best answer. When they brought him a coin, he asked them, ‘Whose head is it?’ They answered, ‘Ceaser’s.’ Then he told them, ‘Give to Ceaser what belongs to Ceaser and God what belongs to God.’ ((Matthew 22:15-22)

Perfect answer – Case solved and closed.

In another case, when they brought him the woman caught in adultery, ‘Teacher, they said to Jesus, ‘this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery. In our law, Moses commanded that such a woman must be stoned to death. Now, what do you say?’ Jesus thought about the question and sensed a trap, they only asked him that question to trap him, not to be enlightened. He took his time time and weighed the options. He bent over and wrote on the ground with his finger. When they disturbed him the more with the question, he straightened himself and threw them the most humiliating question, ‘Whichever one of you has committed no sin, let him cast the first stone.’ He bent over and continued writing on the ground. They all walked away, one by one with the older ones first. He then told the woman to never sin again. ( Good News Translation John 8:1-11 )

Best answer given, case solved and closed.

Do not be quick to answer, take your time, think over the question. Weigh the implications of your answer. Sometimes, they don’t ask the question to know or to be enlightened but to ‘catch’ you and implicate you.

Writing Motivation #3




Doing it all the time, whether or not we are in the mood, gives us ownership of our writing ability. It takes it out of the realm of conjuring where we stand on the rock of isolation, begging the winds for inspiration, and it makes it something as do-able as picking up a hammer and pounding a nail. Writing may be an art, but it is certainly a craft. It is a simple and workable thing that can be as steady and reliable as a chore

Now,

Happy writing!

Is Your First Draft A Far Cry From How You Would Like Your Finished Story To Read?

Rewriting a useless first draft can be frustrating. So, do not take your first draft for granted especially when you are writing a novel. Treat it with the same seriousness with which you would regard your finished work. The only difference will be that the rewriting and editing is left out. What first draft like? […]
