Breathe deep. Feel that? It’s not just the crisp mountain air of the Sierra Nevadas. It’s a fresh perspective, an attitude toward life that leaves one feeling…hopeful. After all, according to Elizabeth Preston, “Your life is an occasion. Rise to it.”
What you’ll find when you look past her boundless optimism is a quintessential American writer (with a master’s degree in it!), an academic perfectionist (4.0 GPA!), and a person who has her hands in about a million different writing projects at once. And she does indeed live at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, as the name of her blog implies.
So, Elizabeth, what inspires your writing?
Elizabeth’s two cents:
Every time I look at this picture, I’m reminded of two things that continually inspire me: 1) that life is a constant journey, and 2) that there’s always something else around that curve. It could be a good something, it could be a bad something, but I’ll never know unless I keep chugging away.
