Writer's Encouragment!

I've been on a bit of a break--with my writing--and was recently encouraged by another writer's twitter post that I randomly happened to see.  It was like a refreshing rain.

 All it said was:

"I've been on a long break but today I get back to work.  And it feels so good!"  @JessicaB_writer

It was a simple statement.  Factual but poignant for my life.  What it said to me was:

1)  She had no regrets about her break.  Writers beat themselves up about breaks, or what they call "writer's block".

2)  In the 'here and now', today she was getting back to it!  Not tomorrow, not next week, nor when she finally got a "round tuit."

3)  And to prompt everyone who read the post, she added her feelings!  "It feels so good!"

Who wouldn't feel encouraged by this short tweet?  I did!  I told her so.  Thanks Jessica!  Thanks for a simple statement!  I needed it.  Now, back 'tuit'!  Chapter 4 revision, here I come!


  1. Amazing! I'm so glad that my little tweet inspired you. I wish you all the best on your endeavors. :)

  2. Wonderful! I sometimes catch a tweet that inspires me too :)

  3. Sometimes inspiration just jumps out and catches us! The proverbial "ah-ha moment"

    1. Love that: "jumps out" :) It's true, that's what this tweet did!

  4. That is an encouraging tweet! I like the here and now of it.

  5. great.. never need to apologize for taking a break.
