More famous inspirational quotes about writing:

Writing isn't hard if you have a burning desire to accomplish; many writers didn't think they had the talent but they had something important to say so they persevered and conquered their fear.
Byron Pulsifer

Some may think that writing is a lost art form because of computers but only if you don't take advantage of the opportunity to communicate with the world through the web. It has never been easier to be a published author when you take advantage of establishing your own website to get your message to millions.
Byron Pulsifer

And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.
Sylvia Plath

I have never known an artist, painter, musician or writer who is satisfied with their own work so don't let self-criticism stand in your way.
Byron Pulsifer

It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop.
Vita Sackville-West

The time to begin writing an article is when you have finished it to your satisfaction. By that time you begin to clearly and logically perceive what it is you really want to say.
Mark Twain

When once the itch of literature comes over a man, nothing can cure it but the scratching of a pen. But if you have not a pen, I suppose you must scratch any way you can.
Samuel Lover

Writing, I think, is not apart from living. Writing is a kind of double living. The writer experiences everything twice. Once in reality and once in that mirror which waits always before or behind.
Catherine Drinker Bowen
