Some Links to Inspiration...

It's the beginning of Jan, so I imagine there are quite a few people with New Year's Resolutions lurking out there. I myself, am trying to wrangle with a new rough draft.  So for this week, I've added a number of links to get you writing, or inspired.

1. In case you need some motivation to sit down and actually start writing. ...

2. Worried/scared/terrified enough to pee your pants about writing? Watch this....

3. Or perhaps you need some inspirational quotes to get you to the desk with pen in hand:

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. -Benjamin Franklin

There are two kinds of writers: those who make you think, and those who make you wonder.-Brian Aldiss

You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it. ~ Neil Gaiman

First, find out what your hero wants. Then just follow him. ~ Ray Bradbury

You fail only if you stop writing. ~ Ray Bradbury

4. Last of all, here's an inspirational speech from Neil Gaiman about living the writing life. No one says it better than the author of Neverwhere.


  1. These are great. Wonderful things to think about with the new year :)

  2. Absolutely wonderful. Thank you.

  3. This is wonderful, Jess! Thanks so much for sharing this :)

  4. Hope it helps get the writing juices flowing for someone else!
