Dreaming in Character

On Starting Again


I’m reading Art & Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking. This is a book I’ve ready many times before, but I always find something new in it. I share this quote from the book because it’s relevant to me today:

“Quitting is fundamentally different from stopping. The latter happens all the time. Quitting happens once. Quitting means not starting again – and art is all about starting again.”


Author: G.L. Jackson

Writer, reader, amateur photographer. Mostly, I just like pretending to be a different person each day of the week.

  1. I love that quote. I even got a poem out of it. :laughs: Thanks for sharing.


  2. Sample downloaded to Kindle app. :grins:


  3. I’m not much of an artist. So that means I’m a quitter. 😆 Well at least I’m not a stopper. Ahihihi. Nice quote.
