I know we all need support and an uplift when the writing life gets tough. And it will. So settle back and read these quotes that lift my creative spirit. And make me more determined to tell my stories. I hope they help you, too.

  4. Write until your ship crash-lands in a blaze of glory, landing in the sci-fi convention to thunderous applause from your fans. (OK, perhaps I've taken the Galaxy Quest schtick a bit too far.)

  5. I like to write to clear some of the nonsense out of my head. Somehow, putting what you've been thinking down on paper exposes a lot of the inconsistencies and plain lack of logic that's been rummaging around in the old noggin. The motto I'm having chiseled into my tombstone for consideration by future generations: "Most of what we know is wrong."

  6. I like the doubt one. It's true that sometimes we undermine our own efforts through overzealousness...

    1. Don't we? I think that's what holds many writers back.
