I love quotes, especially when they are uplifting and encouraging about the struggles in our life. Writing is as much a joy as it is a struggle. Many people dream to write, few actually do. This first one is my favorite.

“Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.” – Barbara Kingsolver

“First, find out what your hero wants, then just follow him!” – Ray Bradbury

“Most of the basic material a writer works with is acquired before the age of fifteen.” – Willa Cather

“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.” – Douglas Adams

“Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.” – William      Faulkner

“I am irritated by my own writing. I am like a violinist whose ear is true, but whose fingers refuse to reproduce precisely the sound he hears within.” – Gustave Flaubert

“You learn by writing short stories. Keep writing short stories. The money’s in novels, but writing short stories keeps your writing lean and pointed.” – Larry Niven

Until Next Time…
