Daily Writing Quote #1

Here is what I have decided. As a way to get myself more inspired and get back to writing after nearly a week and a half without it, I went through the internet scouring quotes. Quotes always inspire me for whatever reason. I found the most amazing list of quotes regarding books. Reading them, writing them. Needless to say, I wrote last night. A scene that had been giving me trouble for weeks, in fact. 🙂

So I thought I’d share the little nuggets of wisdom. Daily. As a way to get other writers out there inspired. Having a tough day writing? Keep these things in mind. It will make the long, arduous, sometimes seemingly never-ending journey to completion worthwhile.

Today’s quote:

A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man’s mind can get both provocation and privacy. ~Edward P. Morgan

My thoughts:

I think this one is particularly beautiful in its truth. Honestly, where else but in books can we purge notions we would never consider? Books that we read AND write offer us a sort of release. We aren’t afraid to put that moment in a book, even if we might be afraid to live it ourselves. It gives us privacy of soul, stirs us to both tears and laughter, and elicits emotions within us that we take with us forever.

I hope you all find as much enjoyment in this as I will. Plus, it will give us something to discuss rather than having me here just blabbering about nonsense all the time. Which I don’t mind doing, quite frankly. And do not be fooled into thinking I will do it no longer. 😉 I am the MASTER QUEEN of babble.

Have a wonderful Saturday all. Happy Writing!

  1. That’s an excellent quote, thanks for sharing it. I love using quotes to inspire me, too. Sorry to hear you haven’t been well, but I’m glad it was sorted out quickly!

  2. Great quote. I was thinking of this from the reading standpoint, as well as the writing. Reading is a haven for a lot of us.

    Speaking of that nephew I just mentioned on another post, I was trying to plug books over TV before he left. Before he left I bought him two books.

    He said, “But, I like Spongebob Squarepants.”

    I told him, “I do too, but by the time you’ve seen a Spongebob episode five times it is time to read a book instead.”

  3. Great quote! 🙂 My favorite is by Stobie Piel (romance author): “I’m not out to reach everyone, just like minded souls.”

    I love her philosophy on that – particularly after I’ve received a bad review or two. But never mind all that…

    How are you feeling? How’s the recovery going? No more pain?

  4. I love quotes. Annalee, teach that boy that reading is good! It’s best we start them young!

    Cora, I love that quote. It’s SOOO true, I think. Those like minded souls are the ones you touch with your writing. The others, may just not GET IT.
