I’ve collected a few quotes to inspire you in your writing during these difficult times. Take them to heart!
The scariest moment is just before you start!
Make yourself a writing area, no matter how small – just for you, your pen, or laptop/computer. A quiet place.
As soon as you start to pursue a dream, your life wakes up and everything has meaning.
If there are no tears in the writer, there will be no tears in the reader. If there is no surprise for the writer, there’ll be no surprise for the reader.
Learn to enjoy your own company, because good writing requires concentration.
Inspiration is everywhere, if you seek it out.
Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.
Listen to the criticisms and prejudices of your trusted ‘first readers.’
Enjoy the process of writing, and what you learn about yourself along the way.
We are all apprentices in a craft where no-one ever becomes a master.
Forget all the rules. Forget about being published. Write for yourself and celebrate writing.
