I thought today that I’d share some of my favorite writing quotes. Enjoy!
A writer, I think, is someone who pays attention to the world.-Susan Sontag
If you find yourself asking yourself (and your friends): “Am I really a writer? Am I really an artist?” Chances are you are. The counterfeit innovator is wildly self-confident. The real one is scared to death.

The business of being a writer is ultimately about asking yourself how alive am I willing to be?-Anne Lamott
If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word.-Margaret Atwood
Writers are not here to conform. We are here to challenge. We’re not here to be comfortable—we’re here, really, to shake things up. That’s our job.-Jeanette Winterson
Half of what I write is garbage, but if I don’t write it down, it decomposes in my head.-Jarod Kintz
