Writer’s Quote Wednesdays – Confucius

Today’s quote on Silver Threading is a great inspiration for those, who would like to start writing. I guess, it’s a problem for many amateur writers – can you actually write? Would it be of interest to anyone? Should you really do that?

Blogging is a great place to start, giving you an idea of what you can actually do, of how it would feel to tell your story to others. I started blogging just several months ago and found it very interesting to connect to other expats, parents, travellers, share experiences. I decided to start working on a travel memoir, describing our life on the move, and it just seems as an enormous task to me – how do I combine 10 years, 6 countries, stories about different interesting people and amazing places? Were do I even start? So this quote of Confucius, which I stumbled upon, straight away caught my attention:

confucius

That’s so right, isn’t it? You’ve got to start somewhere, just take the first steps, no matter how small, but at least you would already start moving in the right direction.

P.S. You can have a look at what people achieved in ancient China, probably following the same wisdom, in this post about Summer Palace in Beijing.

  1. I have had the same thoughts about writing my book. I have begun an outline. I am a planner and once I got it all on paper it fell into place for me. I took it from the largest and brought it down to the smallest. Great quote and it works for me! <3
