Monday Quote Day!


Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life.
{Anne Lamott}
There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.
{Willa Cather}
To work magic is to weave the unseen forces into form; to soar beyond sight; to explore the uncharted dream realm of the hidden reality.
{Starhawk}
Dreams are illustrations…from the book your soul is writing about you.
{Marsha Norman}
Maybe one of these days I’ll be able to give myself a gold star for being ordinary, and maybe one of these days I’ll give myself a gold star for being extraordinary–for Persisting. And maybe one day I won’t need to have a star at all.
{Sue Bender}  
I am a part of all I have read.
{John Kieran}
I am incomplete without my work. I am so closely bound to it, so much identified by it, that without it I think I would crumble into dust and drift away.
{Terry Brooks}
You know, Francie, a lot of people would think that these stories that you’re making up all the time were terrible lies because they are not the truth as people see the truth. In the future, when something comes up, you tell exactly what happened but write down for yourself the way you think it should have happened. Tell the truth and write the story. Then you won’t get mixed up.
{Betty Smith, A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN}
Happy Monday and happy writing, Zigzaggers! 
Happy Memorial Day, USA!!! 
THANK YOU to all of our nation’s incredible troops: those who are retired, those who are currently serving, those who are injured, those who have died. Your courage, strength, and sacrifices to keep us safe are remembered always and greatly appreciated. Also, to the families and friends whose loved ones are far from home: I admire your courage, strength, and sacrifices, too! My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
