From my Journal: dated 3 July 1978
Still, no thoughts come to me. I am tired of waiting. It seems I never will succeed in writing. Once, I held high my hope and desire to write. Now, it all seems useless. If I do succeed, what happiness will it bring to me . . . or to anyone? —Freeda Baker Nichols
Hemingway’s advice makes it sound easy. Write one true sentence, he said.
What about you? Do you find writing to be an easy task? Or does it seem to be a tough assignment at times?
From my 1980s Journal: “Time is a most precious gift. We must cherish it as we would our very best friend. We must greet it with a most warm welcome and treat it with respect because the time of each day is as a guest who will not come our way again.” —Freeda Baker Nichols, Tuesday, March 25, 1980.
