Y is for You


YOU can, YOU should, and if you’re brave enough to start, YOU will." ~ Stephen King

This is one of my favorite writing quotes and one that inspired me a great deal when I was trying to get the courage up to write my first story. Thanks, Mr. King! :)

  1. Great quote! For some reason the "you should" part is sticking with me. If we have all these ideas in our heads, then we should write them down!

  2. Good quote. It's great to have others' support but ultimately it's down to ourselves. Scary, but freeing too!

  12. Hi human, Julie,

    U got that right. Nice to see a sentence by King that isn't a run-on sentence that goes on and on and on and uses the conjunction word "and" over and over and over again :)

    Pawsitive wishes,

  13. Yeah, I definitely like that one. ^_^ With everything else that goes into writing, it's easy to forget that it only happens if we sit down and get the work done ourselves.
