Insecure Writers Support Group, one of my favorite groups ever and boy do I need my writers around me right now. I've hardly written a word. But instead of whining, I'm going to go through some of my favorite quotes hoping to inspire not only my fellow writers out there, but also myself. I have got to change my way of thinking and break out of this shadow I've sunk into.
"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you sow." Robert Louis Stevenson
"It is never too late to be what you might have been." George Eliot
"There are two way to spread light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it." Edith Wharton
"Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it's the only way you'll do anything really good." William Faulkner
"Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up." Jane Yolen
"I've learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not our circumstances." Martha Washington
"To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others. You only need to accept yourself." Thich Nhat Hahn
"Action is the antidote to despair." Joan Baez
"The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail." Nelson Mandela
I hope these quotes inspired you today. I felt better as I put this post together. And I will leave you with a little Girl Power.
