Who doesn’t love quotes?
A good quote can uplift you. It can encourage you when you feel like giving up. It can inspire you to punch those damn keys. A good quote can even become your blog’s motto.
That’s why I’ve compiled this list of quotes about writing. So you feel inspired and motivated to punch those damn keys.
“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood. I’d type a little faster.”
This one was actually my first blog’s motto for a few years. I love this quote because it has this sort-of Bukowski, “Find what you love and let it kill you” sort of vibe. Find something you love and live and die for it.
“Don’t bend; don’t water it down; (and) don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”
I love this one because it reminds us that we should write about the things that keep us up at night. And we should be relentless when writing our truth, no matter what.
“Just write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens. Most of my friends who are put on that diet have very pleasant careers.”
Write a lot and read a lot are the most common tips that you’d find, and they are so common because they work. In order to create content, you must consume content. And in order to create content… well… you must create content.
