Advice on Writing and Life

"E.L. Doctorow said once said that 'Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.' You don't have to see where you're going, you don't have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. This is right up there with the best advice on writing, or life, I have ever heard."- Anne Lamott (Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life)

This quote is exactly what I needed for inspiration today. I think it goes along with the idea to stop and smell the roses along the way. It's all about the journey.
