Yeah . . . What He said

Some days you just need to lean on the wisdom of others like a crutch to keep yourself upright. Today is one of those days here at Writer Off the Leash. Lean into some of these sage words.

“Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” 
~ Les Brown

“The writer’s job is to get the main character up a tree, and then once they are there, throw rocks at them.” 
~ Vladimir Nabokov

“Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.”
~ William Faulkner

“The scariest moment is always just before you start.”
~ by Stephen King

"We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master."
~ Ernest Hemingway

“Creativity takes courage.”
~  Henri Matisse

“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
~ G.K. Chesterton

“You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.”
~ Jack London

“Don’t be a writer; be writing.”
~ William Faulkner
