“Write stories that express who you are. Write stories that wander in places you want to go or love to visit. Answer your questions. Explore your obsessions. Tackle your fears. You know you’re hitting on something when thinking about a story gives you feels: it excites you, scares you, gives you the vertigo sensation of wondering whether or not you can really write this thing. Be honest. Look under your own fingernails and see what dirt lurks there.”
“Stop trying to find balance. Instead find harmony. Pick a root note, a priority, a center for your life, and harmonize with it. If any activity, project, or social obligation doesn’t harmonize with your root note, throw it out.” ~ Joe Bunting S
“People say to write about what you know. I’m here to tell you, no one wants to read that, cos you don’t know anything. So write about something you don’t know. And don’t be scared, ever.” ~ Toni Morrison
I absolutely LOVE love. Whether I’m reading about it, writing about it or witnessing it, there’s just something about two imperfect people refusing to give up on each other that really does it for me. It’s…everything.
Have you seen Furious 7, yet? No spoilers here, but clearly it was a great movie because it hit billion-dollar status in a mere 17 days. A bunch of beautiful cars, crazy chases and spectacular stunts, of course, but I must say that one my favorite moments of the film happened at the end between Dom and Letty and what he said to her… AWW!
Who could ever forget this line from the 4th film?
“It starts with the eyes. She’s gotta have those kind of eyes that can look right through the bullshit, to the good in someone. 20% angel, 80% devil. Down to earth. Ain’t afraid to get a little engine grease under her fingernails.” – Dominic (talking about Letty)
YES! YES! YEEESSS!
Trust me, I could go on and on about the Dom+Letty and Brian+Mia ride-or-die romances…but I wouldn’t do them justice.
So let me direct you to the latest post from Shakir Rashaan as part of his Manly Musings series on USA Today’s HEA Blog.
