“All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is this: Act as if it were impossible to fail.”

Lovely Old International Tractor – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor and Ink
Lin (Old Rock Chick) from WetCanvas posted a wonderful photo of a International Tractor last weekend. I had a great time painting it. Lin took this picture in Abercastle. I love the instructions on how to get there from the website I just linked to…
How to find Abercastle
- Satnav: SA62 5HJ
- Bus, The Strumble Shuttle from St Davids or Fishguard
- Abercastle is on the All Wales Coast Path
They have such neat names for places on the other side of the pond. Lin lives in the UK and she loves to travel and explore her surroundings. I like that because she shares her wonderful photos with her WetCanvas friends.
About Dorothea Brande
Dorothea Brande wrote the quintessential how-to-write book, Becoming a Writer, which was among the first to address every writer’s core problem: How to sit down and let the words flow. Her book, published in 1934, remains in print today. She was born in 1893 in Chicago. She worked as an editor on the Chicago Tribune and The American Review and married the latter journal’s owner. She also wrote Wake Up and Live, which was adapted into a movie in 1937. She died in 1948.
