On Writing

If you are never satisfied with what you write, that is a good sign. It means your vision can see so far that it is hard to come up to it. Again I say, the only unfortunate people are the glib ones, immediately satisfied with their work. To them the ocean is only knee-deep.
~Brenda Ueland (If You Want to Write, Graywolf Press, 2007)

I love this quote. This gives me confidence to continue to write, as I know the more I write, the better I'll become. The potential to grow is endless, as long as I continue to strive toward the deep.
