I've always loved the written word. Each book I've read (and I've read a lot!) has changed me in some small or large way. Writing is a way to make a mark in the world, be heard, take a stand. Ever since grade school I've heard the call to become a writer. I shrugged it off for a long time but it got to the point where I could no longer deny it. And I'm so glad I finally listened and started writing! I feel a release of pressure, a lightening of my load when I write.
Here are 15 of my favorite quotes from famous writers about writing (in no particular order).
I agree with every one of them!
It's as fun for me to look at pictures of the great writers as it is to read their famous quotes! They are each so different and fascinating in their own way. You can really see their personalities in the way they pose for the camera, whether they choose to smile or not, the way they tilt their head or the way their eyes twinkle.
Anyone can be a writer! And the world needs diversity now more than ever. So if you feel the pull to write, if you have a story to tell then get to it! Don't let anything hold you back.

I'm a romantic at heart with an overactive creative mind and an artistic soul. I've always been an avid reader - I read as much as I can as often as I can! Writing has been a life long dream that I haven't allowed myself to pursue until just recently. In April I finally published my first novel - Naupaka Blooming, a Hawaiian Reincarnation Romance. And now I'm working on the first book in a new fantasy thriller series called Summer's Shadow.
