Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
What I've learned:
Writing: My imagination is limitless and I'm surprised by what I can come up.
Reading: Reading takes me on new adventures not possible by any other means than my mind.
Writing: Sometimes I find my writing hard to swallow and use the backspace key a lot.
Reading: Not everything published is worth reading.
Writing: In order to accomplish my goals I need to muster all the strength I can. I'm more superhuman at times than I realize.
Reading: Kick as women in books feed my mind. Amazing and talented authors are indeed superheros.
Writing: In order to write believable characters one must get inside their heads. Without emotion a story falls flat.
Reading: Whether we want to feel or not, books suck us in, and take us on emotional roller coasters.
Writing: Not all heroes are perfect. Sometimes the perfect hero has flaws.
Reading: There is nothing wrong with fairy tales. We all deserve an escape from reality.
Writing: Adding a little bit of humor makes a story come alive. Laughter is the key to happiness.
Reading: Wild women passionate about life, caring not how the world sees them is priceless.
Writing: Love is not perfect. Sometimes it is weird, opposite of fairy tales, and there is nothing wrong with that.
Reading: The most believable love stories contain imperfect heroes and heroines.
