Saying that writing is my passion is an understatement. I live for it. I live it. I love it.

But just because I breathe words for a living doesn’t mean writing comes easy for me. There are days when I cannot write. Not because I don’t want to but because I simply can’t. And it is in days like these that I drown myself in inspiration whether in reading or doing something creative.

One of which is reading inspirational quotes about writing. These 38 quotes are not just any other quotes. These words are engraved in my life and hopefully they will inspire you to write too.
