Tuesday Tidbits #4

 

 

Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!

 

 

“If you are anxious because what you have written feels so personal that you are hesitant to share it, then rejoice! You have captured what every writer should aspire to and, I promise, there will be someone so glad you shared it. Words heal!”


 

“Writing is the epitome of recycling. Same words retold, reshaped, rearranged, and remolded. The well-used subjects of love, loss, laughter, and life. All given back as a snapshot of a moment that can never be replayed.”


 

“Writers, unless of some great fame, are slow to critique others. I think it is because we all secretly wonder about the merit of our own work.”


 

“The internet spawns hundreds of thousands of pages of content each day. It is not hard for anyone to be a writer. The hard part is being good enough to get paid for it.”


 

“My friend thought words were all powerful, so I texted him a smiley face. It did not have the desired effect. He didn’t smile at all.”


 

“We criticize our own efforts, lamenting we will never write like Shakespeare, Wordsworth, or Carroll. And we shouldn’t want to. We should focus on the two things we have and none of them do. The chance to continue to write and the opportunity to improve.”


 

“Anthropomorphism is one of the greatest tools a writer has. To imbue our own human qualities into our physical world is paramount to playing God. To imbue your own human qualities into another person is called ‘setting an example’, and it has nothing to do with words.”


  

Now get out there and write something!

    I love these Tuesday tidbits – so inspirational for a writer. Great point about not wanting to criticize others because we may wonder what gives us the right to do so…
