Writing quotes are everywhere. Some people want them because it gives them some sort of perspective on their own writing journey. For others, it is about the need to feel a sense of belonging to the writer whom they admire, but they can’t get the one-on-one time they want. A new writer needs support as much as a more experienced writer. It’s about the process or the journey this life takes you, and how far you are willing to grow and go.

Quotes about writing are good for any writer, since this is the way they can learn to relate to others, and build on their own writing skills. Writing quotes, are only good enough if you can parlay them in your own writing.
