Starry Night, by Vincent van Gogh

Starry Night, by Vincent van Gogh

I have a migraine and can’t write much, so for today I’m sharing some quotes from Vincent van Gogh that I find inspiring.

“I long so much to make beautiful things. But beautiful things require effort—and disappointment and perseverance.”

“I keep on making what I can’t do yet in order to learn to be able to do it.'”

“For the great doesn’t happen through impulse alone, and is a succession of little things that are brought together.”

I have a bit of a story idea I’m turning over in my mind. I wrote a couple of paragraphs as a story opening earlier this year without knowing where it would lead. A line came to me so I started writing. I might work off that more. The idea of writing a whole fantasy novel next month scares me, because I feel like I can’t do it and it won’t be any good and it just won’t happen. But I think it would be good for me anyway, so hopefully I can get some ideas planned out and conquer another novel!
