Inspiring Quotes on Writing

* “When you finish a draft of a poem, or short story, or novel, you make sure you go out and celebrate all night long because whether the world over notices or not, whether you get it published or not, you did something most people never do: you started, stuck with, and finished a creative work. and that is a triumph.” Andre Dubus III

*”Success is a finished book, a stack of pages each of which is filled with words. if you reach that point, you have won a victory over yourself no less impressive than sailing single-handed around the world.” Tom Clancy

*”Writing is something you do alone. it’s a profession for introverts who want to tell you a storybut don’t want to make eye contact while doing it.: John Green
