There’s so many inspirational women around who can lift us up, support us and give us an extra spark of energy when we need it the most!
Whether it’s your friend or mentor, or look to famous women who have “made it” we can find insight when they divulge their inner secrets. Every hard-working person has a process or routine that lends itself to a successful work ethic.
Here’s a few ‘behind-the-scenes’ quotes from our favourite modern-day creative heroines…
Phoebe Waller-Bridge. “[At the end of Fleabag] I was like, ‘God, it’s been amazing, but I’m never going to have another idea,’ and then I went to sleep. I woke up and I had this idea for this movie in my head…”
Elizabeth Gilbert. “I get up at 4:30 or 5 a.m. and I write nonstop until midmorning. Then I spend the rest of the day staring at a wall because my brain is like a fried egg. I’ll have an early dinner and an early bedtime, by 7 or 8 p.m., and I’ll do it again the next day and the next until the book’s finished. It’s a very militaristic thing, the early hours.”
Amy Poehler. “As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people’s ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.”
Taylor Swift. “There are definitely moments when it’s like this cloud of an idea comes and just lands in front of your face, and you reach up and grab it. A lot of songwriting is things you learn, structure, and cultivating that skill, and knowing how to craft a song. But there are mystical, magical moments, inexplicable moments when an idea that is fully formed just pops into your head. And that’s the purest part of my job.”
J.K. Rowling. “I try to start work before 9 a.m. My writing room is probably my favorite place in the world. It’s in the garden, about a minute’s walk from the house. There’s a central room where I work, a kettle, a sink, and a cupboard-sized bathroom. The radio is usually tuned to classical music, because I find human voices the most distracting when I’m working, although a background buzz, as in a café, is always comforting.”
