My 7 Favorite Writing Quotes

Quotes by other writers always encourage me when I’m struggling to move on in my writing. I think it’s because other writers are on the same journey as I am, either ahead of me in their journey or somewhere I’ve already been. But the thing is, other writers struggle with the same things I struggle with. Their quotes speak to me because they know what I’m going through, and they know just the encouragement I need to keep going.

This week I thought I’d share with you guys my favorite quotes by other writers. I love these quotes so much! I even have all of them up in my room, that way whenever I need encouragement I can read them and get inspired. I hope that if any of you guys are struggling writers, these quotes will help you with your writing journey.
