Appreciate: Fiction, romance novels, yellow roses, literature, history, the musty smell of library books, the fresh smell of new books, bookstores, coloured pencils, coffee, opera, fantasy, supernatural, and life-changing adventures.

If you can't take harmless criticism, you'll never make it in writing. Not everyone is going to love your work. Criticism is apart of life.

"There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic." -The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

"A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they say it. Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight. By using words well they strengthen their souls. Story-tellers and poets spend their lives learning that skill and art of using words well. And their words make the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper." -Ursula K. Le Guin
