Okay, so I'm not done with my book yet. I want the plot to at least have a semi-coherent structure before I declare my rough draft officially DONE, so that means I'm not ready to post about revision yet, but I want to post SOMETHING! I need to blog because I love it (and I love ALL of you. Yes, even you, with the mouse creeping towards the back button, ESPECIALLY you) so I decided to post some of my most favoritest writing related quotes. Because I LURVE quotes (I'm just full of love on this fine Saturday).
If you have any good quotes you would like to share, please do! I'm always on the lookout for a good bit of inspiration.
So here they are, may they inspire you and fill you with love (for me, of course.)
