Anyone can become a writer. The trick is staying a writer. –Harlan Ellison
Do you consider yourself a writer? Many people say they aspire to be writers, or that they’d like to write a book one day. But while spoken words reflect aspirations and goals, they are empty and meaningless without product.
In short, writers are people who write. Every day, without fail. Good days, emotionally rough days, or even days where you are so busy the only time you can find is a quick twenty minutes before you fall asleep at night.
Today, I am announcing a giant project for the year 2012: Project 365 is a series of blogs who have dedicated themselves to posting a blog every day in a specific project. I am going to do my own project, writer-style.
In 2012, I will post a blog every day highlighting and discussing a famous author’s quote that inspires me and hopefully inspires others. I aim to include the socially accepted greats (Twain, Shakespeare, Wolfe), the lesser knowns (Sachar, Nix) and the mostly invisibles.
I believe that everyone has something important, something amazing to say. And as writers, our job is to record those words and create meaning behind them.
Join me in 2012!
