ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

Meme party bloghop Feb 29-Mar 4 - If I were a season, I'd be spring...

I found this on C Lee Mckenzie's blog. Join Tara TylerChristine Rains, and Lee on this easy-peasy HOP. Post a MEME during the week between Feb 29 and Mar 4 (use your own pic or an easy meme maker app) - and if you can't think of anything, pass on encouraging words from one of your reviews, or an inspiring quote!


Visit others. That's it!


Then the awesome hostesses will hop around and Ooo and Ahh and choose one entry each to win an ebook. AND two lucky random participants will win a $20 GC. Enter and spread some warmth!




No winter blues where i live at the bottom of the world, but I'm taking part anyway. 

I saw this meme on Writer's Ramblings ages ago, and I've filled it out myself. Now I'd love to see your answers. Do it quickly without over-thinking it. Then copy as much as you like (all or some) and post in comments for us to enjoy...

  7. If I were a liquid, I'd be coffee. I have a feeling that coffee is what I am anyways :)

    No winter blues where I am at either...I could totally do with some more winter. Though I myself would probably be autumn if I were a season

    Your post made me smile, a great way to start the week!

  11. Love your entry, and agree with most; but I would definitely have to be flip flops. Yeah, flip flops that's me.

    1. Love the old flip flops -- embarrassingly, we call them thongs in Oz!

  15. Love the pic & the answers! Many of mine would echo yours (eagle, sunshine, smile...)
    I do love fall best tho!

  16. That's a lot of I would be's. I would be a flute, live in the mountains, (Denver is against the mountains) and I do love mango smoothies. As for the rest, I'd have to think hard. Choosing one color is beyond difficult, can I say I'd be the rainbow?

    Fun post.

  17. How fun! If I were a day of the week I would be Saturday. If I were a drink I would be a hot coffee with just the right amount of cream. I am tired right now- but I will have to think about this one. :)
