"I learned that you should feel when writing, not like Lord Byron on a mountain top, but like a child stringing beads in kindergarten -- happy, absorbed, and quietly putting one bead on after another." ~ Brenda Ueland, If You Want to Write, 1938
Now that puts writing on a whole different level. I remember playing with my mother's button jar and what an absorbing activity it was to find the prettiest, biggest, or shiniest buttons for my stringing project.
Note to Self: Find pretty jar. Get coloured beads. Put on desk as reminder of how writing should make me feel!
Must dash ... Happy Monday,
