This Week’s Quotes to Write By
Quotes to make you pick up that pen or tap on that keyboard and start writing
These quotes graphics can be a lifesaver for any writer on days when low self-esteem takes a nose dive or when doubts and insecurities threaten to overwhelm.
Whenever I feel doubtful of myself as a writer, I seek motivation in the form of quotes from known great writers.
These quotes help me regain the much-needed confidence and inspiration to write. They’re like invisible forces which push me to continue writing.
I’d like other writers like me to be motivated, too. So, starting this week, I’ll be posting writing quotes converted into graphics. These are as much for me as for you. I’ll be using a hashtag I’d thought of: #UWriteU.
I pick only three quotes at a time which I reflect on and imbibe in my mind. Any more and my brain will just keep on reading quotes and not doing anything about them. Try this trick, and you’ll see yourself writing in no time at all.
1. No one can tell your stories but you.
This quote is particularly helpful on days when I feel like my story is the same as the others, and by that, it follows that no one will want to read it. It reminds me that while my story may have some similarities with other stories, those aren’t written by me.
Remember this: Every writer is a unique person and therefore, every story is unique. Your story is unique because it’s written by you.
(Plus it doesn’t hurt to see Chris Evans in this gif!) 🙂

2. Put one word after another.
Some days I feel myself dried up of words and it frustrates me. I remember this quote and I place myself in front of my laptop and just tap away. In no time at all, the words come pouring in like magic.
It goes true for all forms of writing: writing a story, a blog post, a review, or anything. You just really have to make the effort. If you don’t, you won’t produce anything creative.

3. Stopping means Failure.
Every writer goes through a phase when you think everything you’d done is worthless and that you’re a failure. But here’s news for us: we only fail if we stop writing.
Failure is never not selling thousands of books, not becoming a best-selling author, or not winning writing awards.
Failure is when we stop writing. Failure is when we quit.
Let’s not be a failure. Let’s not quit. Let’s continue to write and learn how to become a better writer each day.

I hope these quotes have given you a boost to write! Stay tuned for more next week.
