Q is for Writing Quotes

One of my most recent addictions is Pinterests. I love browsing quotes and there are so many! Inspirational and motivational quotes for the days when I feel I need a boost to get into the writing zone. Funny quotes for the times when I need that laugh to keep me going through the next writing hurdle. And the advice infographics that help me when I feel a little stuck. There’s everything there, and I complied tons of boards. For the purposes of this post, I’m going to share only the memes I created.

For every time someone tries to tell you to be a realist:

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars. ~Les Brown

For the times people ask you ‘why do you want to b a writer?’:

I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say. ~Flannery O'Connor
I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say. ~Flannery O’Connor

For the times when we need an affirmative boost of reassurance:

If we had to say what writing is, we would define it essentially as an act of courage. ~Cynthia Ozick
If we had to say what writing is, we would define it essentially as an act of courage. ~Cynthia Ozick

My favorite writing quotes for when I’m feeling as if I’m not going to make it to The End:

A writer is a writer, not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, or because everything she does is golden. A writer is a writer because, even when there is no hope, even when nothing shows any sign of promise, you keep on writing anyway. ~Junot Diaz
A Writer is a Writer

 

And if you’re looking for some more quotes, I have some on my website, on my Pinterest account, and if you feel like taking it to the next step I recommend Sarah Andersen’s funny webcomics.

What about you? Do you have favorite writing quotes?
