Favorite piece of...

Happy Friday!!!

Today I'm keeping it simple... a few quotes...

1. Your favorite piece of writing will always be your next one.
2. Stand in the rain with your face turned upward every chance you get.
3. Every writer spends a lifetime as a writer-in-training.
4. Every good writer is a sponge: soak it up, wring it out.
5. A fair number of fiction writers have been avid liars since childhood.

So if the snow is falling or the rain is coming stand in the middle of it all and enjoy the moment. If the sun is shinning spend a day outside to soak it up.

Write a little, read a little, love a lot.

Have a fab weekend!

Great quotes and have a fantastic weekend! The only time I would suggest not standing in the rain is during hurricane season...the debris really dampens the free spirit of it all ;)

Laura Pauling said...

Ha ha! Avid liars - all of us!

Amie McCracken said...

Love these. Avid liars *snicker*.

li said...

I prefer to think of it as "telling other peoples' truths". Which makes me...a tattle tale and a liar, I suppose :))

Diane said...

Great thoughts to inspire on this rainy day. It is raining here, but I'm still in my pajamas, so maybe later I will go out and let it hit me. :O)

Love #2. I'm a rain fanatic. Warm summer droplets beading on my face, while the giggles of children splash in forming puddles. Those are some of my favorites.

Christine Danek said...

I love your humorous and honest approach to writing. I think the A to Z Challenge will be quite a lot of fun! I am definitely up for it. I already began my alphabetical list of what to blog about.

Meredith said...

Yay for amazing advice! I need to go out and soak up some of this sunshine this afternoon. Thanks, Jen! Have an awesome weekend!

O.K. I like this blog, like the short posts that don't make me feel like I'm going crazy from boredom! Like your pink hair also!

Jennifer Hillier said...

The number #4 quote really resonates: Soak it up, wring it out. Yes, exactly.

Have a great weekend, Jen!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Beautiful, Jen! Your post could have been a poem....

The Words Crafter said...

Hey Jen! I love your quotes, especially #5!

I just read your truths and I love spending time just talking to my husband, too. Funny, one of my dreams is to at least spend a few nights in a castle. They're so.....ancient. Imagine if their walls could talk!

Have a great weekend!

Stephen Tremp said...

I love being out in the rain as long as its not freezing rain. My wife thinks I'm nuts but if I'm caught during a rains storm without an umbrella I'm actually enjoying it!

Ashley said...

Clarissa Draper said...

Awesome quotes! Hmm, yes, I have been a little liar from the beginning... have a great weekend.

Al said...

Hi! Thank you SO much for reading my new blog! And being so nice!! I can't wait to read Demonglass!

pauline said...

I would like to submit that comedic non-fiction writers make for good liars, too. Seriously. The Husband will vouch for the tiny grain of truth in some of my writing. ;)

#2 and #3 are win for me
