Protect your time. Feed your inner life.

Be a good steward of your gifts.
Protect your time.
Feed your inner life.
Avoid too much noise.
Read good books,
have good sentences in your ears.
Be by yourself as often as you can.
Take the phone off the hook.
Work regular hours.

~Jane Kenyon, A Hundred White Daffodils

    Love this. Thank you for the important reminder. I first came across it in Dani Shapiro’s Still Writing, and I just listened to a wonderful podcast with her on Beautiful Writers.

    Could it be this easy? Is this the formula? *sigh*
