Monday Musings

"The story I am writing exists, written in absolute perfect fashion, some place, in the air. All I must do is find it and copy it." ~ Jules Renard, "Diary" February 1895

I love this quote. The thought that my story (stories) are floating about up there, somewhere, in their perfected form excites me and makes me want to work all the harder to pluck them from the clouds and settle them down on the page.

Happy Monday,

Wow. I think I used the exact same word...floating in my comment to Katie Ganshert's post today.

It focused on this topic.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Wise words. They just need to float a little closer, or seep into my computer.
