Why we write – part 2

by SK

Here are some quotes from my Creative Writing class expressing what we love about writing – inspiring stuff!

When life gets you down, write your way back up.

Words are your mind; your mind is whatever you wish.

Getting stuck sometimes gives you the best ideas.

An idea for a story is like an unexpected visitor: you don’t want it to leave, but where shall you put it?

The challenge of being an author is making the make-believe seem real.

Poetry is just the end of the road – it’s what you discover on the journey that counts.

Your life is a story – write it!

Poetry is like a light leading you to the full story.

Writing is like something I can’t explain – the rush of pen across paper creating magical new places and characters or portraying your feelings is something you should not miss.

If you can’t eat, sleep or talk, write.
