Inspiring Quotes

Just as I have a collection of bookmarks, I have a quote book I started in 2004.

But finally the purposes that writers serve must be their own. What you write is yours and nobody else’s. Take your talent as far as you can and guard it with your life. Only you know how far that is; no editor knows. Writing well means believing in your writing and believing in yourself, taking risks, daring to be different, pushing yourself to excel. You will write only as well as you make yourself write.

William Zinsser

Let your writing be the loving arms that will enfold you.

Natalie Goldberg

As a writer you are free. You are about the freest person that ever was. Your freedom is what you have brought with your solitude.

Ursula K. LeGuin

Blessings to you this weekend.
