#Nanowrimo 2021 Day 6

Tarot Card

Queen of Cups – a dreamer – turning imaginings into creative activity.

Pep Tip (from Nano…)

On good days you’ll fly higher than a peregrine cruising for dinner., on bad days someone will have to scrape you off the floor with a spatula. This is what writing is like.

You have to write through the highs and lows, the careens, and the meditations of your stories. And that’s what you’re here for now: to write.

~ Robin McKinley
