That was supposed to be a combination of "Friday" and "Inspiration" but now it just kind of reminds me of perspiration, which isn't what I was going for. Hmmm....

Food for writing thought for your weekend:

There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed. -Ernest Hemingway

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. -Ben Franklin

You fail only if you stop writing. -Ray Bradbury

I needed some writing quotes for the day! It's my writing time (AKA, my boys' naptime), so I'm getting geared up to do my secret weapon (haha, yoga) and then see if I can meet my wordcount goal for today!

Which of these three quotes grabs you the most? I think I've needed the encouragement from all of them at different stages of my writing. Which do you like? Are there other writing quotes you love?

While I was searching for these I actually found a TON by Ernest Hemingway that I liked, which I thought was fun. (PS. If you're an English major like me and hating Hemingway because he's kind of a chauvinist, I learned that his mom dressed him as a girl when he was a kid, so seriously, I don't blame him anymore...)

What are you thoughts on these quotes? Happy Friday! Write something this weekend! Or do like our friend Ben said and do some living that you can incorporate into your writing later. =)


  1. Oh yeah, I definitely bleed all over the paper. Or keyboard. Whatever. LOL.
