5 Quotes Only Book Nerds Will Appreciate

This cute little book Quotes For Writers was gifted to me from a dear friend.  Inside it is full of quotes for writers broken off into different sections.  I absolutely adore quotes for every aspect of life, but this little gem of a book resonates with me since I love to write and read. Inside there is a section just of quotes about books.  I loved them all, but since…

Trying A New Creative Outlet And Finding Your Passion After 50

What’s your favorite creative outlet?  Or, do you swear you don’t have a creative bone in your body?
