Neil Gaiman — a British fiction writer, graphic novelist, comic creator, and the screenwriter behind iconic tales including "Coraline," "American Gods," and the "Graveyard Book" — is also a prolific diarist and blogger. His eponymous website features a journal section where he posts musings, photos, personal stories, and the sort of wit and wisdom you’d expect from a writer whose literary accolades include multiple awards. This beautiful quote dates to a journal entry from late 2011, where Gaiman wishes his readers not only a happy new year but a year of “glorious, amazing mistakes.” “Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.” A fabulous sentiment — you can’t create and you can’t grow without taking wrong turns.
