"When you are a writer you feel lazy even when you are working. Who gets paid to sit around in a coffee shop all day and type into a computer?"
Donald Miller (via coffeebooksandjesus)
"I choose to write because it’s perfect for me. It’s an escape, a place I can go to hide. It’s a friend, when I feel out casted from everyone else. It’s a journal, when the only story I can tell is my own. It’s a book, when I need to be somewhere else. It’s control, when I feel so out of control. It’s healing, when everything seems pretty messed up.
And it’s fun, when life is just flat-out boring."
Alysha Speer (via what-strange-lives-we-live)
"I’m not a fan of ‘write what you know.’ If you don’t know, find out. I knew nothing about the Bible before I started writing ‘The Year of Living Biblically.’ That was kind of the point – to learn."
A.J. Jacobs (via writingquotes)
"If you write, you already know that it’s a heart-wrenching, life-giving, soul-searching endeavor that requires more patience, persistence, and gravitas than almost anything else you’ve ever encountered."
