Who doesn’t love a little validation?
I was reading Seth Godin’s blog (if you’ve never read it, it’s brilliant . . . and alway short) today, as I do most days, and couldn’t stop smiling. Here’s how it begins:
“Abbey Ryan has painted a new painting every day for 8 years.
Isaac Asimov published 400 books, by typing every day.
This is post #6000 on this blog.”
He goes on to talk about the myth of writer’s block and the value of the act of doing your work every day.
He says: “When you commit to a practice, you will certainly have days when you don’t feel like it, when you believe it’s not your best work, when the muse deserts you. But, when you keep your commitment, the muse returns. When you keep your commitment, the work happens.”
This was perfect for me to see today, as I really didn’t feel like posting. I needed a reminder of the value of doing it even when you don’t feel like it. Because I have found it to be true that the muse appears and the work happens once I put my fingers to the keyboard.
