It’s a Monday. Mondays don’t really seem to be anyone’s thing, so I thought maybe we 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:)
“You can’t think yourself out of a writing block; you have to write yourself out of a thinking block.”
“The worst thing you write is better than the best thing you did not write.”
“The role of a writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say.”
“When something can be read without effort, great effort has gone into its writing.”
-Enrique Jardiel Poncela
“The best time for planning a book is while you are doing the dishes.”
“If plan A fails, remember that you have 25 letters left.”
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
“The scariest moment is always just before you start.”
“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”
“If you want to be a good writer, you’ve got to read like a wolf eats.”
“The pen is mightier than the sword.”
-Edward Bulwer Lysson
“Good writing is clear thinking made visible.”
“When we read, we start at the beginning and continue until we reach the end. When we write, we start in the middle and fight our way out.”
“You can make anything by writing.”
“When writing a novel, a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.”
“Write hard and clear about what hurts.”
“Fiction is the truth inside the lie.”
As always, I hope you got something out of this post that will help you. Don’t forget to comment if one of these stood out to you. I’d like to hear your thoughts:)
