Proper Motivation

I like to think that motivational and inspirational quotes about writing are crumbs that lead one to the table of action. Let’s face it, we're all susceptible to emotional ruts and bouts of laziness we call writer’s block but in the end the only way to write is to write…here are a few quotes I peek at every now and again when I need to shovel some coals into the writing furnace…


  1. I like how you said that motivational and inspirational quotes are crumbs that lead to action. I can't tell you how many times the smallest thing has inspired me. Very perceptive...

  2. Thanks...inspiration is a wonderful thing indeed :-)...I put the quotes up last night but the fonts were crappy...this one works better...ONE::

  3. This may not sound like an inspirational quote, but it is to me:

    "I write to no purpose. I write, as it seems to me one must write, for nothing."-Marguerite Duras

    Here's one of mine: "Writing is like giving birth to yourself."

  4. "Writing is the best way to talk without being interrupted." Pretty much sums up my reason for writing!

  5. Nice dude... thanks for these quotes... like it....

  6. A great post indeed, and the one I liked the best was:

    "There is no great writing, only rewriting".

    Its absolutely true and something not many upcoming writers realize. I have seen many aspiring writers who are always a little judgmental of everything they churn out while writing their first drafts.

    A good writer once said that if you ever get to read the first draft of any great writer, you will never read him again ...
