A - Z Challenge [2016]

Émile Zola

My Theme: Tips and Inspirational Quotes for Writers

Z for Zola

“The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.”
― Émile Zola

Just had to have this one as well:
“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”

― Émile Zola

It's the end of the A-Z Challenge for 2016! Hope you enjoyed my posts and I'm sorry I couldn't visit every blog, but well done - we made it!

  6. I love your Z for Zola and I so agree with his quote. The gift of any artist is nothing without hard work.
    I believe I am following you now and look forward to visiting your blog.

  7. Thank you so much for all the wonderful posts. Congrats on making it all the way to Z :) So many people think art comes without work, but Zola is right, it doesn't.
