Isabel Allende

Each day I receive an inspiring quote in my email. Today’s quote was especially apropos for creatives. It comes from Chilean author Isabel Allende, who writes daily and begins a new novel every year on January 8.

While I must confess that I do not draw daily – shame on me – I don’t wait around for inspiration either. Like Ms. Allende, I show up to the studio and I work. It is through steady work that the inspiration comes.
