5 quotes from famous writers to get you writing

Do you ever get overwhelmed by all the amazing writers out there? By how much others have done when you can barely write a paragraph? Reading an amazing book can be hugely inspiring – and sometimes it can thrust crushing self-doubt on your shoulders. Theodore Roosevelt said that comparison is the thief of joy, and he was absolutely right. It’s a killer of creativity, too.

Here are five quotes to help you get back in touch with your muse and away from self-doubt.

It's perfectly okay to write garbage - as long as you edit brilliantly - CJ Cherryh

If you write one story, it may be bad. But if you write a hundred, the odds are in your favour - Edgar Rice Burroughs
We are all apprentices in a craft where no-one becomes a master - Ernest Hemmingway
If I waited for perfection.. I would never write a word - Margaret Atwood

Sometimes I find that realising that all of the most famous and successful authors are just humans like me is exactly what I need to get over writer’s block. I hope it helps you too.
