I've been thinking a lot lately about my writing, where it's been and where it's headed. Happened across this quote by Joseph Pulitzer, which of course, provided more food for thought.
"Put it to them briefly, so they will read it; clearly, so they will appreciate it; picturesquely, so they will remember it; and, above all, accurately, so they will be guided by its light."
Wow. There's a bit to digest here. Not only to digest, but to implement. How does one manage to keep all those plates spinning at one time?
Plate spinning girl that I am, I reviewed my short list. I've shared similar before, I'm sure. Somehow though, reviewing these things helps sort my priorities and bring focus to fuzzy things. The Karen Short List is...
1) Practice writing. A lot.
2) Continue learning. Always.
3) Read. Read. Read. With chocolate by your side, of course.
4) Fellowship & brainstorm with other writers.
5) Live life purposefully.
6) Trust God for direction and wisdom.
What's on your short list for writing as Mr. Pulitzer describes? How do you keep all your plates spinning?
