Are you writing your book yet? No? Still in need of further inspiration? Here are some of my favorite inspiring quotes about the craft of writing.

Everybody walks past a thousand story ideas every day. The good writers are the ones who see five or six of them. Most people don’t see any.
-Orson Scott

Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go.
-E. L. Doctorow

The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.
-Gustave Flaubert

And the idea of just wandering off to a cafe with a notebook and writing and seeing where that takes me for awhile is just bliss.
-J. K. Rowling

Writing means sharing. It’s part of the human condition to want to share things – thoughts, ideas, opinions.
-Paulo Coelho

Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.
-Isaac Asimov

Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.
-Les Brown

Dance above the surface of the world. Let your thoughts lift you into creativity that is not hampered by opinion.
-Red Haircrow

Writing is a struggle against silence.
-Carlos Fuentes

It’s a bizarre but wonderful feeling, to arrive dead center of a target you didn’t even know you were aiming for.
-Lois McMaster Bujold

You can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.
-Jodi Picoult

Being in the mood to write, like being in the mood to make love, is a luxury that isn’t necessary in a long-term relationship. Just as the first caress can lead to a change of heart, the first sentence, however tentative and awkward, can lead to a desire to go just a little further.
-Julia Cameron

Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.
-Winston S. Churchill

I’m writing a book. I’ve got the page numbers done.
-Steven Wright
