Let the Shoe Fit!

You know the saying...if the shoe fits, wear it. You also know what it really means: that if something strikes home, applies to you, own the truth of it. Admit it. Even better, take a lesson from it.

Following are just a few sayings I'd like to share, which I've often thought of doing, but felt that it's not enough for a blog post to just share some quotes.

Well, I've changed my mind.

Take these aphorisms and apply them to your writing life. You'll be surprised how well they can speak to your situation. And if the shoe fits.....go for it!

Here goes:

"Only those who risk going too far will ever know how far they can go."

"Do something everyday that you don't want to do. You need to get out of your
comfort zone in order to grow." Ed Smith

"Strengthen the things that remain."

"Opportunities are disguised by hard work, so most people don't recognize them."
Ann Landers

"When you reach for the stars, you may not get one, but you won't come up with a hand full of mud, either." Leo Burnett

"I couldn't wait for success, so I went ahead without it." Johnathan Winters

"Why not go out on a limb? That's where the fruit is." Will Rogers

How can your writing be improved by taking the advice from one of the above
sayings? Do something today with that new thought or inspiration!
