I'm working ahead in the challenge so my blog posts can go out on time (hopefully that glitch is taken care of...). I'll keep posting on the appropriate day for each of the challenge prompts on IG but I can't blog every day. It's just too time consuming since I put my all into whatever I'm doing and usually end up taking the long way around to get to the finish line. *shrugs* It is who I am... Read on to see my responses for Day 14.
#writingthesenseschallenge Day 14 - Motivational Quote
I chose this famous quote by Lao Tzu because it fits so well with my current work ethic and also with the story I'm writing. "Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step."
The tagline for "Over Land & Under Stone" is "Walk well the path which lies before you." I know there are Bible scriptures that teach about walking different paths. But this quote is so well known, I'm sure many will relate to it. Since I added a scripture into the front matter of my first book, that's something I'd like to do with each successive installment to the series. I will probably include Lao Tzu's quote, too, when I add the scripture for this book.
#fantasywipjanuary Day 14 - Who inspired you to become a writer?
My mother first inspired me when she gave me a notebook to write in over the summer when I was still in elementary school. But I was also inspired later on by my 12th grade English teacher and later still by my husband and kids.
Please do not be surprised if I get behind on posts this week. Since setting down the details is the focus, it'll be more of a challenge to find the sections of rough draft I wish to share with you and refine during the last week of the challenge. Even then, I know it will be more of a challenge to sit down and copy/paste a piece of my rough draft, than it sounds. Bear with me and I'll keep going. Don't forget! If you share your own responses to my challenge, use the hashtag (#writingthesenseschallenge) so I can follow your progress. :)
