Having Written

Thanks to Frank Parker for nominating me for the “Three Quotes for Three Days” challenge.

The rules of the challenge are:

  1. Three quotes for three days.
  2. Three nominees each day (no repetition).
  3. Thank the person who nominated you.
  4. Inform the nominees.

Quote for day three, and, again, it’s a two fer:

“Writing is the only thing that when I do it, I don’t feel I should be doing something else.” — Gloria Steinem

“I do not like to write — I like to have written.” — Gloria Steinem

When I write, I’m in my little bubble, and I love it. But it’s still work, and nothing beats that feeling I get when I’ve completed the work — when it’s been written, revised, edited, polished, proofed, and ready to go out into the world.

I get enormous satisfaction from writing, every part of the process, but the most satisfying part is when the project has been completed. That time between projects is like the pause between breaths. I can’t linger in that pause; I have to take the next one.

I nominate:

Anne Francis Scott

Melanie Smith

Max Power
