amateurs sit and wait

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, 

the rest of us just get up and go to work.” -Stephen King

I enthusiastically agree that to be a serious writer you can’t passively sit back and wait for ideas to fall into your lap.

Our calling is to go out and grab inspiration by the horns.

I believe the same is true for any endeavor, whether we are teachers or garbage collectors or just trying to be the best person we can be.

Success requires the courage to commit ourselves to success, whatever we do and however we define it.

Does that work for you? Did you grab inspiration by the horns in 2019? How will you do the same in 2020?
