A Few Quotes

You’ve probably noticed that I like quotes.

Here are a few writing related quotes I’ve stumbled across lately.

“Believe in yourself and in your own voice, because there will be times in this business when you will be the only one who does.

But in the end, only the strong survive.”
~ Jayne Ann Krentz

“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”  ~ Ray Bradbury
