I've been thinking of this quote quite a bit recently:
“I heard a preacher say recently that hope is a revolutionary patience; let me add that so is being a writer. Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up.”
― Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird
LJ friends recommended that book to me back when I had my first bout of depression. It was so much more than a writing manual to me.
