To be or not to be

I’m not big on inspirational quotes or pictures. I heard writers were supposed to be, so I tried. It didn’t work very well.

But there are some that have stuck in my brain since the first time I heard them.

“First drafts are steamy piles of alien puppy poo.” (Paraphrased) Stephen King

Seriously? If a master of the written word can say his first drafts are shit, then mine being steamy and stinky can’t be a bad thing. Right?

And that ties in to my second all time favorite quote.

“You can’t edit a blank page.” The all wise, all knowing, Anonymous.

Even if what I write is shitty, I can always fix it later. If I don’t write it, either from fear or disgust, then it will never be anything I can turn into a slightly better third draft. And an even better fourth draft. And so on…

I think the quotes people find inspirational change as their life changes. But, those are the ones that really stuck to me.

What do you find inspirational?
