The Saturday Writing Quote — on staying motivated

Under a Dark Sky: A Novel by [Rader-Day, Lori]

“The boss is happy when the words are written. Sure, she gives out hearty handshakes when other things get done, but she only gives raises when the words get done, when the edits are made and sent back to the press, when the publicist’s emails have been answered. She doesn’t care as much when the Facebook status is updated or the Twitter account is humming. All of it is business, but some of it is in the mission statement, and some of it isn’t.”

Lori Rader-Day, award-winning author of The Day I Died, Under a Dark Sky, and other novels
