It’s summer and I’m super busy with other stuff like weeding, lawn mowing, and my day job which is in the process of moving to another location. Writing is way down on the list which just inspires a lot of guilt.
So I thought I’d look up some quotes about summer and reading and writing. The first two quotes are my ideal of summer–long lazy days where you can do what you want.
“One benefit of summer was that each day, we had more light to read by.” Jeannete Walls
“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.” Sam Keen
The second set of quotes are probably more accurate. In my life at least, writing needs to be carved in among the other things on the To Do list.
“I know white clothing is supposed to enhance that summer glow, but writers don’t tan.” Diablo Cody
And this quote too, sums up my life in summer: “It’s a cruel season that makes you get ready for bed while it’s light out.”
And finally, the quote that helps me get rid of the guilt, because it is advice I can take right now.
“Write about summer in winter.” Annie Dillard
That one, I can probably do.
