The Gift of the World to the Wanting

Mary_Pickford-desk“Work is not always a hard thing that looms over your years. Sometimes, work is the gift of the world to the wanting.”

– Catherynne M. Valente, in The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland

There are so many good quotes in this book, but I think this one is my favorite. It sums up everything I feel about writing, and after reading it, I typed it up and printed it out to hang over my desk.
