Today’s quote of the week comes from Gail Carson Levine, author of Ella Enchanted. I found this quote buried deep in a NaNoWriMo forum about writing quotes which you can find here. According to the thread, it’s from a 2009 NaNoWriMo pep talk by Ms. Levine.
“Do not beat up on yourself. Do not criticize your writing as lousy, inadequate, stupid, or any of the evil epithets that you are used to heaping on yourself. Such self-bashing is never useful. If you indulge in it, your writing doesn’t stand a chance.” — Gail Carson Levine
