Anne Lamott on writing

“Day by day, you have to give the work before you all the best stuff you have, not saving up for later projects.  If you give freely, there will always be more.”
– Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

    This quote is a reflection of the abundance versus scarcity mentality, is the glass half full or half empty idea. I really think that the more we allow the ideas to flow, the more they’ll come. It’s like sex too. The more you have it, the more you want it. (Until you’ve been married 20 years, sigh).
