Motivational Mondays

I LOVE inspirational quotes, words from those who’ve made the journey and have insights to share.  So Mondays will be my day to share them here on the blog (though I’m not saying they won’t creep in on other days, too!)
This one is from the Advice to Writers site, which I recommend highly – you can find them here and on Twitter here.
Happy Monday, and happy writing this week!
“The most important thing is you can’t write what you wouldn’t read for pleasure. It’s a mistake to analyze the market thinking you can write whatever is hot. You can’t say you’re going to write romance when you don’t even like it. You need to write what you would read if you expect anybody else to read it.
 And you have to be driven. You have to have the three D’s: drive, discipline and desire. If you’re missing any one of those three, you can have all the talent in the world, but it’s going to be really hard to get anything done.”
