Creative Quotations from . . .
Brenda Ueland
(1891-1986) born on
US writer.
The only good teachers for you are those friends who love you, who think you are interesting, or very important, or wonderfully funny.

So you see the imagination needs moodling, - long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering.
These people who are always briskly doing something and as busy as waltzing mice, they have little, sharp, staccato ideas, such as: "I see where I can make an annual cut of $3.47 in my meat budget." But they have no slow, big ideas.
I learned that you should feel when writing, not like Lord Byron on a mountain top, but like a child stringing beads in kindergarten, - happy, absorbed and quietly putting one bead on after another.
Know that it is good to work. Work with love, and think of liking it when you do it. It is easy and interesting. It is a privilege. There is nothing hard about it but your anxious vanity and fear of failure.
