“True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, and the zest of creating things new.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery
As writers and creatives it’s easy for us, wonderfully easy, for us to embrace these words and the truth behind them. We know exactly what the beloved author of the beloved classic, “The Little Prince” is taking about.
We know “the joy of deeds well done.”
We know the “zest of creating things new.”
Abundance and opportunity are all around us, just waiting for us:
When we finish a story that we feel comes close to expressing what we wanted to say, it can bring us moments of happiness and satisfaction.
When we grapple with a character who isn’t real enough and find a way to breathe life into him or her.
When we jot down the beginning of a poem and return to it because we feel there’s a spark of beauty or truth captured by our words.
When we give a fellow scribe the encouragement to keep going in the midst of a fallow time when writing seems too hard.
When we give wings to our imagination and create something we feel is fresh and exciting.
Any and all of these moments are ours to enjoy. How lucky we are to know the joy and zest of creating things new as we all write on!
