interesting and true

When the world seems to be shouting, “Why bother?”  Square your shoulders, ground your feet firmly and say, “Because I believe in myself.”
I believe that we all have something special to give the world.
I believe that each vision of life is unique.
There is no substitute for you.
When someone needs you ~ your book, your art, your beauty, your particular brand of truth  ~  no one else will do.
In Thirteen Ways of Looking at the Novel, Jane Smiley said,
"What is difficult is not to write something new but to write something interesting and true."
If you’re having a hard time seeing what sets you apart as a creator, take Smiley’s advice and look for what is true and interesting.
