IWSG - Quotes to Inspire You

Thank You to Alex J. Cavanaugh for IWSG. This month Alex's co-hosts are Sheena-Kay Graham, Julie Musil, Jamie Ayres, and Mike Swift.

A short but yet proactive IWSG post.
Maybe some author quotes will inspire some of you!

“Yes. Growing up is highly overrated. Just be an author.” – Neil Gaiman
“If I waited till I felt like writing, I’d never write at all.” – Anne Tyler
“To survive, you must tell stories.” Unberto Eco
“A writer never has a vacation. For a writer life consists of either writing or thinking about writing.” - Eugene Ionesco
“Writing is like a contact sport, like football. You can get hurt, but you enjoy it.” – Irwin Shaw
“Writers see the world differently. Every voice we hear, every face we see, every hand we touch could become story fabic.” – Buffy Andrews
“If a story is in you, it has got to come out.” – William Faulkner
