Happy 2017! I hope this new year brings you great success and happiness.

I certainly plan to make this year the best year yet! I want to start this year by sharing a dose of inspiration for all writing endeavours. Without further ado, here are ten motivational writing quotes to get you started this year.

  1. “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
    — Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
  2. “Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”
    — Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own
  3. “You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.”
    — Saul  Bellow
  4. “You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”
    — Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
  5. “If writing didn’t require thinking then we’d all be doing it.”
    — Jeremiah Laabs
  6. “I think all writing is a disease. You can’t stop it.”
    William Carlos Williams 
  7.  “The most beautiful things are those that madness prompts and reason writes.”
    Andre Gide 
  8.  “Writing is a struggle against silence.”
    Carlos Fuentes
  9.  “Anyone who says writing is easy isn’t doing it right.”
    — Amy Joy

And my personal favourite…

10. “Every word I write is like a drop of my blood. If it’s flowed passionately and long, I need time to recover from the emotion spent before I begin a new story. My characters are aspects of my life. I have to respectfully and carefully move between them.”
Red Haircrow
