Sentiments of Inspiration

Are you have trouble writing anything? Do you think all of your writing sucks and you want to toss into into the depths of hell to burn for eternity? Are you so frustrated with anything related to writing and want to hide under your bed? Fear no more. Save this list for future use when you are having troubles in writing town.

  • You’re awesome. Don’t let anyone (or yourself) tell you otherwise.
  • You are doing something creative with your life, don’t take it for granted.
  • You’re alive. Seriously. I should have put this at the top.
  • Laptops and Starbucks would fail without writers.
  • You’re doing what most people can’t, or are too lazy to do.
  • Be proud of yourself – writing is fracking hard.
  • In your close nit group of friends, you’re probably the only writer, and you should brag about it. (not too much though; don’t be that writer.)
  • Coffee companies would go out of business if not for us.
  • You have the power to do whatever you set your mind too, even kill people you don’t like. (fictionally, of course)
  • With great power, comes mediocre responsibilities.
  • You’ve probably given a lot of cats a home. Yay adoption!
  • You turned down a bunch of vanity publishers. Good for you!
  • Every book has the potential to be turned into a movie one day. ‘Cause that’s just the direction the film industry is going these days.
  • Or a television show.
  • You get to discover the best music when writing.
  • Wine companies would go out of business if it weren’t for our crippling anxiety.
  • You’ve probably made the best writer friends (because writer friends get each other, man.).
  • If you haven’t made any writer friends, I suggest looking for them. Also, I’m a writer, and always need friends. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • You can probably type super fast!
  • Your handwriting probably isn’t bad either?
  • You own like a lot of super cute coffee cups too, I bet.
  • You’re able to picture something in your head and write it down for others to see. How freaking awesome is that?!
  • The world would be extremely dull without writers.
  • I mean, there would be no books, movies, shows, music, literally nothing.
  • Fancy pens!
  • If you don’t finish your book, how will your favorite author ever read it?!
  • You gave someone an emotional response from something you wrote. !!
  • Your name could some day be a household name.
  • You get to sign your name to something you created, making it even more special.
  • You can work at your own pace. Whether it take a year or ten years, it doesn’t matter. As long as you finish.
  • Notebooks!!
  • If you self publish, you’re basically an entrepreneur, which is even more impressive.
  • Even if you don’t become incredibly successful, just relax.
  • Whether your goal is 2000 words a day, or 20 words a day, you’re no less and no more a writer.
  • You may complain how much you hate writing, but you know you don’t hate it, silly.
  • You can make money off stuff you wrote!
  • Criticism can be painful. But know that one persons opinion shouldn’t break you.
  • Hard liquor companies would go out of business if it weren’t for us wallowing in self-doubt.

And I’ll say it one last time: You’re alive. Take advantage of it. We are all on this earth for a very short amount of time. Your books… can live on for eternity.

FOREVER.

An outgoing, introverted writer who likes to lie about being outgoing. Talking to your cat at all hours of the night does not count as outgoing; but it doesn't stop her. She is also just as comfortable being at the beach as she is standing in a pile of cactus. If you want to really impress this unique specimen, offer her a box of your best wine.
