Inspiration from the pros

Just a few quotes that I dug up to hopefully inspire a well written day.

“You can approach the act of writing with nervousness, excitement, hopefulness, or even despair–the sense that you can never completely put on the page what’s in your mind and heart. You can come to the act with your fists clenched and your eyes narrowed, ready to kick ass and take down names. You can come to it because you want a girl to marry you or because you want to change the world. Come to it any way but lightly. Let me say it again: you must not come lightly to the blank page.”
Stephen King

 

“The page is long, blank, and full of truth. When I am through with it, it shall probably be long, full, and empty with words.”
Jack Kerouac, Atop an Underwood: Early Stories and Other Writings

 

“I can fix a bad page. I can’t fix a blank page.”
Nora Roberts

“A word is a bud attempting to become a twig. How can one not dream while writing? It is the pen which dreams. The blank page gives the right to dream.”
Gaston Bachelard
