Great Quotes and Sayings For Writers

Inspiration For Every Writer

Last year, after I chose creative as my word of the year, I decided to get more serious about my writing. I love to write. I always have. My earliest poems were delivered softly to the eager and fuzzy ears of my stuffed animals, long before I could write even my own name. I created elaborate magical worlds complete with enchanting characters and shared their adventures with everyone who would listen before I could tie my own shoes. It’s true that throughout my childhood, whenever anyone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I always answered wistfully yet honestly, “a writer.”  Now that I have in fact grown up (in some ways anyhow) I still would like to commit to my dream of becoming a professional writer.  So, this year with the motivation from my word of the year, I decided to start a Writer’s Group.  And so, Ink Slingers was born.  We meet twice a month, we share our progress, set goals, discuss overcoming obstacles such as writer’s block and plot development, and encourage one another. One of the things I like to do throughout the time in between our meetings is to send encouraging posts and great quotes for writers.

In this post, I am sharing some of my favorite quotes and sayings for writers. The very same that I share with my own little circle in hopes that you too will be inspired to write no matter what is standing in your way. Enjoy!
