A note to inspire

"Who wants to become a writer? And why?... It's the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower of life, even if it's a cactus."

-- Enid Bagnold, British novelist and playwright

My mom sent me this quote in the mail a few years ago and it's had a home on my bulletin board ever since. Whenever I feel down about my writing or wonder what I'm doing, it perks me up.

Today's my birthday (my Facebook wall doesn't know what hit it) and I may be getting the most wonderful present later: a niece!


  1. Happy Birthday Sarah! I hope you're niece comes today. It's fun to share a birthday with a little person.

  2. Thanks, got my fingers crossed! :)

  3. Happy Birthday Sarah:)

  4. Hi Elliot, thanks so much for stopping by :)
