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

Great quote and oh so true! Thanks for the motivation!
Very much looking forward to this!
A wonderful idea Olivia! I too need all the motivation I can get on Mondays, though, believe it or not, Tuesdays are harder for me than Mondays, I’ve no idea why.
I love Pearl S. Buck and, like you, that quote is one I need…desperately. I’m probably one of the worst for “waiting for the mood to strike” before I get anything done. How ’bout I just go start right now!
Thanks for a great post!
I LOVE your Blog!
