Inspirational quote

Postby pengwenn » Thu Aug 04, 2011 3:13 pm

I got a Magnetic Poetry calendar at the first of the year but I'm just now getting it set up. There was a quote on one of the months I missed that I liked so much I cut it out and put it up on my wall. I thought I'd share it with you. Here it is:

"I have never thought of writing for reputation or honor. What I have in my heart must come out; that is the reason that I compose." by Ludwig Van Beethoven

For me I've noticed that even though I haven't written anything for awhile I'm still thinking about it. I'm thinking up new stories, editing previous ideas, composing scenes. It's all up in my head even if I haven't done anything about it. I have ideas that I've had for years, maybe even decades, that are still strong and vibrant in my mind. I also use to think that my desire to write would go away if I didn't do it. I guess I'm wrong. I guess I just need to get it out of my heart and my head.
Is this my reality or yours?
