Like Bob Geldof and The Boomtown Rats, I don’t like Mondays. I find it hard to get motivated, and even though I write every day, sometimes I’m just not in the mood on Monday morning and it feels like a drag.
To beat the Monday blues, I’m going to start posting a weekly quote, called The Monday Motivator. These posts will be part of The Writer’s Devotional series, and have the same objective … to encourage, inspire, and motivate writers of all skill levels and across genres.
We’ll start with a quote from Pearl S. Buck, Pulitzer Prize winning author of “The Good Earth,” and the first American woman to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. I think it’s a great starting quote and a lesson I need to learn on an almost daily basis.
“I don’t wait for moods.
You accomplish nothing if you do that.
Your mind must know
it has got to get down to work.”
— Pearl S. Buck
