Wednesday inspiration from Toni Morrison, born this week in 1931. Morrison is the first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Thank you Toni for your amazing books, the world has never been the same since they came out. I know they will continue to inspire future generations.
Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.
- (and begin again!) William Faulkner (via observando)
