Reader Comments (17)

  1. I don’t write much, but I do have a quote I like: You only learn to be a better writer by actually writing.

    It’s like with most things, just get started already.

  2. It’s hard to argue with Neil Gaiman

    “This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done. It’s that easy, and that hard.”

  3. Hello Sonia,

    Something to inspire us and our writings. Reading quotes that boost up our morals are always loved and are in demand.

    I loved the Kelton’s quote “Write it, damn you, write it! What else are you good for?” Something that all bloggers need to
    co-relate with.

    Thanks for the share.

  4. Hi Sonia,

    Awesome Quotes!

    My favorite writing quote is –

    “Writing is a journey of discovery because until you start, you never know what will happen, and you can be surprised by what you do – expect the unexpected! ”

  6. Hi Sonia,

    I often turn to E.B. White, Stephen King, Astrid Lindgren, and William Zinsser when I’m looking for writing advice and inspiration. One of my favorite quotes from Mr. Zinsser is:

    “Don’t be kind of bold. Be bold.”

    Thanks for an inspirational article!

  7. Hi Sonia
    Thank you for these. My favourite is also a Hemingway quote:
    “Just put the seat of the pants on the seat of the chair.”
    Down to the basics, as ever.
    Very best

  8. That Mamet quote is it to me Sonia. I do my best to embody it. To live that sucker. Because I am ALL IN for as long as I am here in my meat suit, being a writer, blogger, just keeping at it. Persistence. People who become world renowned for their writing or anything just keep at it. This is why I am like crabgrass or a bad cold in the blogging tips niche; ya can’t get rid of me LOL….comments, guest posts, Quora, everywhere, I do my best to make friends 1 bond at a time and to help folks by being a familiar presence.

  9. Being a writer certainly as its ups and downs! There are days when I am in the zone and I feel like the words are flowing out of me. Other days, I would rather scrub the house clean than write. I love taking inspiration from other writers and these quotes are perfect. Here’s one of my favorites – It’s by Stephen King: Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.
