Friday Focus: The muscles of writing

The muscles of writing are not so visible, but they are just as powerful: determination, attention, curiosity, a passionate heart. ~ Natalie Goldberg

I'd like to add another one to the list: faith.

Happy Friday!

All highly important. :)

And may I add another? A good sense of humor is invaluable when navigating the perilous publishing waters. ;)

And alcohol, of course.
P.S. I like the new picture.

YES. I really think that there actually is a writing/creativity muscle. For me, once I get into an established rhythm, it's like my brain knows that it's time to work. (Just like athletes stretch before games, and their body knows that it's time to play.) I also get writing cravings if school has kept me from writing a lot - and that's definitely a muscle-ish thing to do!

Great quote. And YES, faith for sure. Thanks for adding that one.
