Top 20 Writing Quotes and Inspirational Pins

20. The art of rewriting.

19. Be positive and constructive in your criticism to raise your credibility, instead of lowering it with negativity. “Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.” – Benjamin Franklin

18. Editing matters! Use this Spelling, Punctuation, and Grammar Revision Checklist to help your readers see through the smoke.

17. Ruthlessly edit your writing. More isn’t better – sometimes it’s just more.

16. Set an intention: What’s something new you’re going to try today?

15. “If not now, when …” “Write” now! There’s no time like the present.

14. Writing Tip – Latin phrases every writer should know. Do agree with this list?

13. A good reminder. Sometimes you can’t help but want it to be perfect, but then you realize that it’s just the first of many drafts. For now you are laying down the foundations of something beautiful and new. Later you edit and revise it into something greater than before.

12. Write to give your ideas and insights flight. “Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.” – Salvador Dali

11. Plan to succeed. “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

10. A positive attitude will show in your writing and will help increase your productivity. “For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

9. “All writing problems are psychological problems. Blocks usually stem from the fear of being judged. If you imagine the world listening, you’ll never write a line. That’s why privacy is so important. You should write first drafts as if they will never be shown to anyone.” – Erica Jong

8. Neil Gaiman’s 8 Rules for Writing – great tips from an awesome writer!

7. Let’s start writing today on a positive note, shall we? “Tell the negative committee that meets inside your head to sit down and shut up.” – Ann Bradford

6. Is writing a chore? Choose a niche you are passionate about and enjoy writing! “Choose a job that you like, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” – Confucius

5. Writing tips from Kurt Vonnegut (Fiction or non-fiction, these tips are great!)

4. When’s the best time to write? “Write” now! “If you wait for inspiration to write you’re not a writer, you’re a waiter.” – Dan Poynter

3. Content writing is like any other training or learning process. Don’t overthink the details, practice, and stick to the path. Once you know all of the rules, then go ahead: break them.

2. Stay inspired – keep writing!

1. You may not be there yet, but you’re one step closer than you were yesterday.

This isn’t really a “writing quote”, but it’s a marketing quote that sums up everything about business. Kind of sorta how Einstein came up with E=MC2.

This quote is by Dan Kennedy, and he briefly said:

“It’s all math”.

This has stuck with me over the years, and it still holds to be true today.
