…be your most powerful self…Laini Taylor QUOTES FOR WRITERS (and people who like quotes)

cat-564202_640
Be an unstoppable force. Write with an imaginary machete strapped to your thigh. This is not wishy-washy, polite, drinking-tea-with-your-pinkie-sticking-out stuff. It’s who you want to be, your most powerful self. Write your books. Finish them, then make them better. Find the way. No one will make this dream come true for you but you.

    “Write with an imaginary machete strapped to your thigh!” Wow!!! I try to do that – by daring to speak openly about subjects that are either dismissed or ignored by most humans who are too scared to rock the boat, to shake up the status quo – and I encourage others to be just as direct and forceful – because we tend to waste so much precious time and energy ignoring the dinosaur curled up on the living room couch out of fear of what it might do when it awakens…thank you, Bridget Whelan, for sharing this…

      Perhaps we should print out that phrase & paste it above our computer monitors, lest we forget (and to worry everyone else in the household). Thanks for reblogging Mira.

      Thanks Danny! It’s a real call to action, isn’t it? With our imaginary machetes ready to strike dead the phrase that weakens our writing, slice out cliches and lop off the creeping passive tense…(I’m getting into this…)
