"What I try to do is write. I might write for two weeks, "the cat sat on a mat,' that is that, not a rat," And it might be just the most boring and awful stuff. But I try. When I'm writing, I write. And then, it's as if the muse is convinced that I'm serious and says, 'Okay. Okay. I'll come.' " ~Maya Angelou #quote

His Day Is Done #Poem To Nelson Mandela By Dr Maya Angelou - #NelsonMandela #RIP
Nelson Mandela released from prison 11 Feb 1990
ON THIS DAY FEBRUARY 11, 1990 NELSON MANDELA WAS RELEASED FROM PRISON AFTER SERVING 27 YEARS ✊✊✊✊✊✊In 1964, Nelson Mandela was sentenced to life in prison over his calls for a colorblind South Africa. He ended up serving 27 years behind bars. Hours after his release on Feb. 11, 1990, Mandela vowed to end apartheid once and for all, telling a roaring crowd: "Today, the majority of South Africans, black and white, recognize that apartheid has no future. It has to be ended by our decisive mass action. We have waited too long for our freedom." Under Mandela's tutelage, apartheid was gradually dismantled over the next several years. It was a battle that he and his countrymen had fought immeasurably hard to win. But though Mandela, who died at the age of 95, eventually won his fight, many around the world today continue to fight their own battles, risking their lives and their freedom to speak up against injustice.

Maya Angelou quotes. A very wise woman who is an example of one who can embrace her strength and use it to transform the world in a stylish and articulate fashion. “I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it. (Popular misquote of "You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.")” ― Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter (2009). A more articulate way of stating what the song "Fighter" by Christina Aguilera did.

"I loved this, although I'll have to admit, I don't think you have to write everyday to be a writer. But I think like a writer everyday." Like the imagery and the humor.
Another pinner: "I loved this, although I'll have to admit, I don't think you have to write everyday to be a writer. I don't and I am a successful author. But I think like a writer everyday."
I loved this, although I'll have to admit, I don't think you have to write everyday to be a writer. I don't and I am a successful author. But I think like a writer everyday.<< I sometimes forget that people don't write on a daily basis. I get deeply depressed when a day goes by that I don't get to write, even if it's just a scribble or a thought for a story that's in my head or that I'm writing.
I loved this, although I'll have to admit, I don't think you have to write everyday to be a writer. But you do have to write.
This is the most accurate and encouraging writer's quote that ever graced the boards of Pinterest.
May you ever be a writer.

so important to teach sentence fluency to all writers! I am SUCH a stickler for editing and making sure writing SOUNDS good and fluid! (Maybe I should have been an English teacher instead...Haha)
writing, sentence variety, sentence length, Interesting for any writer, saved this for myself: This Sentence Has Five Words – Gary Provost
This is why I am not afraid to vary sentence length when I write. It is, also, why I am never afraid to start a sentence with 'and' or 'but. It helps to use various lengths, and more than that - it helps to let the sentences flow naturally. It is always good to remind yourself, as a writer, to not feel constrained by English 'rules'. They are there as a guideline, they are not there to imprison your creativity.

If you've never read this, go to your local library and open a new world...an innocent world in some ways but yet a close minded world of prejudice and hate, and with characters who stood by their convictions.Were people really so full of integrity?Has the world changed so much that it's become hard to even comprehend ppl being so decent and standing up for what they believed in? A must read.
