Natalie Whipple has an "inspiration" section in her sidebar, including some words of encouragement from a fortune cookie. I happen to have a fortune taped to my monitor (right between the RGB codes for work's logo and the CNTL+ALT shortcuts for accent marks):
"A dream you have will come true."
Of course, that's BS unless you put some effort into it, so I also have these reminders:
The first I copied from a Facebook status update by the insanely talented Hudsons: "All vision and no action is a dream, while all action and no vision is a nightmare."
The second came from Natalie Goldberg's Wild Mind: "No one cares that much whether you write or not. You just have to do it."
Whether it's writing, another passion or just life in general, what are your motivational words of wisdom?
