Don’t wait for it,” I said. “Create a world, your world. Alone. Stand alone. Create. And then the love will come to you, then it comes to you. It was only when I wrote my first book that the world I wanted to live opened up to me.
- Anais Nin (March 1933) This is an amazing women, a strong author and story-teller. Like me, she has kept journals her whole life and hers were published, now famous pieces of literature. Anais’ first volume published began in the 1930s. I love her because of how honest she is in her writing. She goes into detail with experiences she has with friends and what she sees in an artist’s world. At a time she even wrote pieces of erotica and would sell them for ten cents a piece. If she was a woman living in the 30s and did all this, then why not me? This beautiful quote helps me dispell the fear I have to create my work. It’s clear once I get in this space, what I’ve been searching for will arrive. These words give me courage xo
