5 Cheerful, Encouraging Quotes from Writers

Way too often, people throw around the advice of writers like it was from the Gospel itself. I’m not a huge fan of most writing advice myself because it always tries to stipulate ALWAYS’ and NEVERS that no one has any right stipulating. Writing is a diverse art form and telling people to always do this and never do that is stupid.

So, instead, here are five really great quotes to give you hope instead of anxiety!

Scott Westerfield“First love is amazing and wonderful, but a kind of panic underlies it, a sense of not knowing what you’re doing. First novels are the same way.”Scott Westerfield

Ben Winters“Because as any writer will tell you, an IDEA for a book is like falling in love, it’s all wild emotion and headlong rush, but the ACTUAL ACT of writing a book is like building a relationship: it is joyous, slow, fragile, frustrating, exhilarating, painstaking, exhausting, worth it.”Ben H. Winters

Robin Hobb“Well,the fun part of being a writer is that it’s like making a wonderful film, with no limit on my budget. I can design the sets, the costume, the lightings, I write the script, and then I get to perform all the roles as I step into each character’s skin, zip up, and adopt that point of view. So, to me, they are all compelling and fascinating.”Robin Hobb

Larry L. King“The best kind of writing, and the biggest thrill in writing, is to suddenly read a line from your typewriter that you didn’t know was in you.”Larry L. King

Neil“What I say is, a town isn’t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it’s got a bookstore, it knows it’s not fooling a soul.”Neil Gaiman
