Friday Focus: Figure out what you have to say

Don't try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It's the one and only thing you have to offer. ~ Barbara Kingsolver


I *love* this quote! When you allow yourself the freedom of writing what's truly on your mind, there's so much more to say, isn't there? =)

Happy Friday!

I would preface that with "True Story:"...

And Jm, I wish I'd thought of that!;)

Great quote and a super reminder when we start thinking "will this sell...?" or "should I be more commercial?" Thanks for sharing it with us.

That's just what I needed to see today. Thanks! :)

LOVE the owl background. (grin). Although, I'm having a little owl jealousy as your owls are way cuter than our owls. :o)

Button looks "awesome" on here.

I agree, Catherine! I've done that. And when I realize what I'm doing, I make myself stop. ;)

Lydia, you're welcome :)

Kristal, the button does look great, doesn't it? And all owls are cute, so we don't have to worry about whose looks better =)

Oh how I love that quote! What a great reminder.

Hey, I notice you're reading "Before I Fall" right now. Me too! I'm only about 1/4 in to it.

Julie - I'm only about five pages into it - waiting until the fog of the weekend clears so I can pick up reading again on Monday! :)
