Not that long ago I took a break from blogging because ..
a) I was going on holiday
b) I was exhausted and getting some serious writers block
c) I was lacking the motivation to do it !
So now I'm back from holiday ( It was lovely and I had a great time ) and I'm bursting with ideas that I am really excited to share with you and I've got my energy back and as a result I'm now really excited to be blogging again !
So yesterday I started giving my blog a bit of a makeover! It's not quite finished because I'm definitely not a technological genius hence why the pages a long the top are currently well .. half not there but give me a week and I'm sure I'll work it out ! But I really wanted it to look a bit more fresh and professional . I'm also thinking about changing the colours of the bubbles in the header to go with the Autumn/Winter seasons, what do you think ? :)
Anyway, so in my recovery from this serious case of writers block, I found some wonderful quotes about the beauty of writing ! So I thought I'd share some with you now .
"Read a thousand books and your words will flow like a river "
- Virginia Woolf
" Write a page a day, only 300 words and in a year you have written a novel "
- Stephen King
" A writer is a world trapped in a person "
- Victor Hugo
" Words are in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible form of magic "
- J.K. Rowling
" The first draft is telling yourself the story "
- Terry Prachett
" I write to give myself strength . I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I'm afraid of"
- Joss Whedon
" This is how you do it : You sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it's done. It's that easy, and that hard. "
- Neil Gaiman
" There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately no one knows what they are "
- W. Somerset Maugham
" Fill your paper with the beatings of your heart "
- William Wordsworth ( This One is my Favourite )
" I write only because there is a voice within me that will not be still "
- Sylvia Plath ( I also quite like this one hehe )
I loved researching all these and found them all really inspiring so I hope they give you a lil bit of writing inspiration as well ! Which were your favourites ? Or do you have a different favourite quote or saying about writing ? I'd love to hear it down in the comments :) Also let me know if theres any specific types or subjects of quotes you'd like to see in this " Quotes Posts ! " Series and I'll do my best to get them up.
Before I go, A lovely blogger called Crystal ( You can find her blog Crystallized Daisies here ) has recently started a YouTube channel and it's absolutely brilliant ! Her last video was a sketch style sort of thing and was hilarious . So if you have a few minutes definitely go check it out and subscribe, you wont be disappointed ! I'll leave a link here :)
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)
