Day #31 Quotes for Writers


“A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.” Richard Bach

This is the quote that I keep ever in front of me on my office desk. It’s a reminder to simply keep writing and never give up on my dreams.
Every writer is an amateur at first.
No writer is born a professional.
It takes time, practice, persistence, and patience.
If you’re reading this or if you have read this series, you are well on your way to becoming a professional writer. You are taking time to learn more about your craft.
Now continue to practice it.
That’s how you become a professional writer.
It’s not chance or luck.
You just have to stick with it.
That’s all.

I have been encouraged by the quotes you have posted and commented on all month. I am definitely the amateur. The 31 day challenge has been a good exercise. I am not so sure I have the 'talent' to write, but it has been good to do it and I have been blessed by doing it. Thanks for the encouragement along the way with your posts.

Thank you for all the inspiring, encouraging words Bonita.
