3 Days, 3 Quotes: Day 3

What a short, sweet, inspiring challenge! Here is my final quote for the 3 Days, 3 Quotes challenge! Thanks again Lois for inviting me to do it. I would like to invite Crumpled Paper Cranes  and Deborah Bowman to share their favorite quotes with us, if they’d like to do so. 🙂

Today’s quote comes from Stephen King:

Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.

Although I’m not a big fan of his novels, I do appreciate many of the things he has to say regarding the craft of writing. And this quote is especially true, whether it’s applied to writing or to any other profession or pursuit for that matter. Creating initial momentum is the toughest and most essential part of attempting any task in life, and so often we just need to simply do it and get things started — something I have to always keep in mind!
