#IWSG Quotes For #Writing Inspiration

This month’s question: Do you have any quotes you use for inspiration?

 

Every once in a while I get stuck as a writer.  Whether the right words are being elusive, or I’m stressed over something from my personal life (usually over finances), or I just can’t get focused.   These are times when I look to quotes to help either jumpstart my creativity, or just get me in to a reflective mood which tend to get the words flowing.

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

 

“The real story is not the plot, but how the characters unfold by it.”
~ Vanna Bonta

 

Writing is my time machine, takes me to the precise time and place I belong.”  ~Jeb Dickerson

 

“Not all those who wander are lost.”J.R.R. Tolkien

 

 

What about you?  Do you have any favorite quotes?

  1. I Love this Carrie Ann! I actually have a board I keep above my desk with quotes and poems from writers I love. There is a lot of JK Rowling, a Sylvia Plath poem, William Carols Williams, Mary Oliver…the list goes on. From Amy Tan, “Words to me were magic. You could say a word and it could conjure up all kinds of images or feelings, or a chilly sensation or whatever. It was amazing to me that words had this power”.
