This quote comes from Bonnie Friedman, author of Writing Past Dark. I’m five days into NaNoWriMo right now, and it’s about this time when my inner editor starts creeping out from the box where I’ve caged him and starts telling me my idea isn’t good enough or my writing is awful. This quote is a great way to help silence the inner editor, shove him back into his box, and get back to writing!
“Sucessful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties.” – Bonnie Friedman
