More Quotes

Hey Reader,

It’s a Monday. Mondays don’t really seem to be anyone’s thing, so I thought maybe we download (1)could all use some good old inspiration to get through the week. Thus, I’ve decided to make the second post of writing quotes.

My challenge for you is simple. Read through these quotes and find one that sticks out to you. Use it. It might not be today or tomorrow, but some time this week find a way to use that quote. Let it inspire you to keep working.

If you like, comment which quote you chose and why. It’s great to hear what inspires other writers and what ways I can keep helping you all out with your work.

As always, good luck:)

  1. I’ve always had a love for Robert Frost and Maya Angelou, so naturally their quotes stick out most to me.

    I especially like another one of Maya’s quotes: “There is no greater agony in bearing an untold story.”
