A Favorite Quote

The Rocket City Bloggers are hosting a Year Long Blogging Challenge. I am a member of the Rocket City Bloggers so I like to participate when I can or when it fits the blog theme.

This week’s theme certainly fits this blog. We are to share our favorite quote. I definitely have a favorite quote but it isn’t from some old ancient writer from literature such as Walt Whitman or Mark Twain or even Jane Austin. No, this quote is from a friend of mine. She and I have never met in person, we only communicate via email and on Facebook. But she is a writer too, like me, struggling with our writing habits.

One day, during our email exchange, she wrote something in a reply to me and this was part of the email. I instantly pulled it out of the email and I have been exclaiming it as my favorite quote ever since.

I discovered that Inspiration is fleeting and you can’t wait for her to come to you when it’s convenient. When she shows up you have to wrestle that bitch to the ground and choke every thing you can out of her! ~wickedmess

If I was a brave soul, I’d get this tattooed on my body, somewhere. I swear I would.

  1. I worked for this guy who was a real toad – except that he did give me one good piece of advice which I have tried to use whenever I write – “Good writing is good editing” – which is why I always try to have my stuff looked at before publishing…no pride of authorship, here! Keep up the good work, Carol!
