Quotes and Cookies: Time

Holy busy summer, Batman! Are you guys having tons of problems finding time to write, too? It can get a little frustrating, that's for sure.

Which is kind of why this quote is so awesome.

You don’t need that much time. You just have to do it consistently. You could probably write a story in ten minutes a day if you did it for enough days.

~Susan Breen

Lovely, isn't it? Lack of time doesn't matter-- consistency does. Eventually, of course, we need to spend more time if we want to finish this decade, but at times when everything else takes precedence, it's fine to just shoot for consistency.

Now to celebrate summer and all its busyness with some summer-themed cookies! Man. Some people's preferred methods of expending creative energy makes me happy.

I want a hot dog cookie! Yum. Sometimes I'm NOT consistent only because I know I don't have a lot of time. So much for that theory. I can do ten minutes. ;)

The cookies look fun, though I don't have the patience for something that detailed. But I think it would be weird to eat one that looked that realistic but tastes like cookie.

Oh,Peggy!! Two of my favorite things: Quotes (especially about writing!) AND Cookies!! Thanks for sharing! And yes, it's so true about how we spend our time. I'm not good at being organized. I used to be! Back when I worked full-time in busy offices, etc. I was organized because I HAD to be! But, we all do the best we can....because being happy and enjoying the journey (of our lives) is what's most least to me!! Have a wonderful, blissful weekend!

Yes, I feel very frustrated with how busy I feel. Definitely no time to write. Sigh.

I always think I'll have more time in the summer? When will I learn? :)

I love those cookies, especially the corn on the cob one. And I thought I would have so much more time to write this summer, but I didn't because I was still working. But you're right that we have to make time to write; otherwise we won't be able to write anything.
