Favourite Writing Quotes

RachelWho doesn’t love a good quote? Quotes make me stop and think. Or laugh out loud. Most of all, I relate to them. Writing is one of my favourite* things to do, along with reading, walking and other unmentionables. So I’d like to share with you my pick of the best writing quotes out there.

*I’m British so I add a U in some words, sorry!

Robert Frost

2. “Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”
Louis L’Amour

3. “A true writer is someone the gods have called to the task.”
Robert Louis Stevenson

4. “Publication is a marathon, not a sprint. Writing the book is only the start.”
Jo Linsdell

5. “I write because, if I don’t, my characters will murder me in my sleep.”

6. “It’s a symbiotic process, writing. What I am makes the books—not part of me, all of me—and then the books themselves inform the sense of what I am. So the more I can be, the better the books will be.”
Jeanette Winterson
