There are loads of highs and lows with writing, but probably more lows, so when you're having a bad writer's moment, let these quotes help you refocus, put things into perspective, and remind you that the world is still turning. 


“The road to hell is paved with works in progress.” Philip Roth

“I don’t care if a reader hates one of my stories, just as long as he finishes the book.” Roald Dahl

“When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people, not characters. A character is a caricature.” Ernest Hemingway

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Maya Angelou

“No tears in the writer. No tears in the reader. No surprise for the writer. No surprise for the reader.” Robert Frost.

“Remember: when people tell you something’s wrong or doesn’t work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.” Neil Gaiman

“One day I will write something that evades criticism. One day I will also learn to fire lasers out of my arsehole.” Me
