Some good advice for writers from Clarissa Pinkola Estes

"The most difficult endeavor is not to create something. The most difficult endeavor is not even to begin. The most difficult is to keep rowing all the way through to completion. And this, in spades, is the content of the night-sea journey... making the descent to true self, nourishing the work from that locus of control, and completing the work. Then beginning the next, and the next... and completing them."
--Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, from her Creative Fire manuscript 
Dr. Estes will be conducting a creativity workshop, "Rowing Songs for the
Night-Sea Journey," Oct. 20-25 at Sunrise Ranch in the foothills between
Fort Collins and Loveland. Go here for more info:
