"A positive habit or ritual
gets you doing your art, not just talking about it."
~ Developing Creative Momentum, Creative Liberty
"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap,
but by the seeds you plant."
~ Robert Louis Stevenson
"The pessimist complains about the wind;
the optimist expects it to change;
the realist adjusts the sails."
~William Arthur Ward
Are you an artist if you simply create artsy stuff? Are you a writer if you don't sell your work? Are you a poet if your work resides in your top drawer? I believe that have the right to define yourself as you wish. A writer, an artist, a poet, a chef. You are the only one who has a say in this, so give it some thought.
