Quotes That Inspire (A to Z = Q)
I keep a journal with my favourite writing quotes. Some of them are from famous writers and some are from complete strangers, but they have all inspired me. Here are a few:
'Write with the door closed, rewrite with the door open.' Stephen King
'If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time to write.' Stephen King
'Omit needless words.' Element of Style
'Getting published is about practising until you're really good, then persevering until you're really lucky.' Tim Clarke
'It's always too early to quit.' Anonymous
'I am a painter, so I paint. You are a writer, so write.' Anonymous
'Until you treat writing as a job, even a part-time one, you won't ever be able to think of yourself as a writer.' Katie Fforde
What quotes have inspired you? Do you agree with Katie Fforde's assertion that you should treat writing as a job to really feel like a writer?
