Blogging PreCourse and Blogging101

A little bit of blog inspiration…

Have you ever noticed that when life gets busy, the first thing to suffer is your blog?  Fall time can be such an active season for people that we start to feel like our blog writing is just “one more thing on our to-do list.”  That is too bad. Why? Because fall is such a beautifully inspirational time of year! 

If you are feeling especially overwhelmed right now, maybe all you need to get those fingers back on the keyboard is a little inspiration.  I thought I would help out with that by sharing a few of my favorite quotes about writing.  Reading any of these often gives me that little extra “push” I need to square my shoulders back and start spilling out words again.

And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.  The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.  ~Sylvia Plath

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.  ~William Wordsworth

Writing, I think, is not apart from living.  Writing is a kind of double living.  The writer experiences everything twice.  Once in reality and once in that mirror which waits always before or behind.  ~Catherine Drinker Bowen

You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you.  And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.  ~Arthur Polotnik

It is impossible to discourage the real writers – they don’t give a damn what you say, they’re going to write.  ~Sinclair Lewis

Life can’t ever really defeat a writer who is in love with writing, for life itself is a writer’s lover until death – fascinating, cruel, lavish, warm, cold, treacherous, constant.  ~Edna Ferber

The two most engaging powers of an author are to make new things familiar and familiar things new.  ~Samuel Johnson

One must be drenched in words, literally soaked in them, to have the right ones form themselves into the proper pattern at the right moment.  ~Hart Crane
