Sometimes to refresh inspiration, I like to look up quotes about writing, so I figured I’d share some lovely ones.
“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”–Stephen King
“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”–Philip Pullman
“If you want to really hurt you parents, and you don’t have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.” –Kurt Vonnegut
“Tomorrow may be hell, but today was a good writing day, and on the good writing days nothing else matters.”–Neil Gaiman
“I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.”–James A. Michener
