Sometimes when I am stuck and don’t know what to write next I find inspiration from someone else’s writing. Try using one of these quotes from Brainy Quote as your prompt when you write this week.

 

I guess writing is a kind of therapy in the sense that there are things you need to say and you say them, and better out than in.

—Hanif Kureishi

 

Fear can be good when you're walking past an alley at night or when you need to check the locks on your doors before you go to bed, but it's not good when you have a goal and you're fearful of obstacles. We often get trapped by our fears, but anyone who has had success has failed before.

—Queen Latifah

 

Writing can't change the world overnight, but writing may have an enormous effect over time, over the long haul.

—Leslie Marmon Silko

 

Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.

—Dale Carnegie

 

I was standing in the schoolyard waiting for a child when another mother came up to me. Have you found work yet? she asked. Or are you still just writing?

—Anne Tyler

 

This society is driven by neurotic speed and force accelerated by greed and frustration of not being able to live up to the image of men and woman we have created for ourselves; the image has nothing to do with the reality of people.

—Yoko Ono

 

 

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.

—Aristotle
