From the writing of others

I realized I’d posted this a bit ago and meant to make it just a draft, I didn’t have the time to get all the quotes done before I started this post, and, before I knew it, it was time for me to go to bed. But this is what I was planning to do. Quotes, poems, songs, those kind of things inspire me to write. I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite writing quotes and why I like them or however they make me respond. I think I’ll end up doing it over a space of time for a bit, and then maybe make it a weekly thing. Here’s to day one.


I love this quote from Justice Brandeis, and how very true. Not very many people can get things perfect on the first try. Or if they do get it right the first time they write it, they are the kind of person that has been writing for a long time and knows exactly how to write that appeases themselves and others.

Me, on the other hand, I rewrite constantly, almost as much as write. Taking the story I have been writing for a long time time now, it has gone through rewrites constantly as my ideas grow and I look at one seeing a dead end and I take it to a new road that will sometimes end in dead ends as well. I like rewriting and exploring the world that my characters live in.
