It’s not easy staying motivated.
Especially when your goal is to write (and finish) a book.
But anytime you feel like giving up, turn back to these 6 simple quotes from accomplished writers (to remind you of the power of what you’re doing):
“Let me live, love, and say it well in good sentences.”
It’s beyond satisfying to find the words that capture what matters to you.
“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”
A secret of the writer’s inner life — you revisit experiences as you record them.
“A word after a word after a word is power.”
Isn’t it especially powerful when it’s a simple sentence?
“Writing books is the closest men ever come to childbearing.”
The agony and the ecstasy involved in leading a creative life!
“Tears are words that need to be written.”
I love how true this is.
