Where does inspiration come from? Inspiration can be found anywhere – media, from a friend or family member, it might be in the sunsets or in the flowers growing by the roadside, a book you read or a television show you watched. The truth is inspiration can be found in most anything especially when you are a writer, because so many things can spark a thought for setting, dialogue, plot or character development. Another good place to find inspiration, especially if you might be stuck on something is through quotes. Therefore I decided to find seven inspirational quotes. Today’s quotes all focus on the professional of writing, although some can apply to numerous life events.

I hope you enjoyed this brief piece and that inspiration finds you.

4. “A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit”.~Richard Bach

6. “The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.” ~ —Ralph Waldo Emerson
