Voice Lessons

Finding our voice is all about finding the courage to write dangerously, to speak out from our hearts onto the page. A wonderful gathering of inspiring quotes about voice and the writer’s calling to inspire us all:

“The role of a writer is not to say what we can all say, but what
we are unable to say.”
Anais Nin

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise it. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
Sylvia Plath

“Quiet people have the loudest minds.”
Stephen Hawking

“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing wings on the
way down.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“Write what disturbs you, what you fear, what you have not been willing to speak out about. Be willing to split open.”
Natalie Goldberg

“Blame it or praise it, there is no denying the wild horse in us.”
Virginia Woolf

“If you hide your ignorance, no one will hit you and you’ll never learn.”
Ray Bradbury

“If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word.”
Margaret Atwood

“Nothing haunts us like the things we don’t say.”
Mitch Albom

“Before you learn to write well, to trust yourself as a writer, you have to learn to be patient in the presence of your own thoughts.
Verilyn Klinkenborg

“If it’s still in your mind, it is worth taking the risk.”
Paulo Coelho

I hope some of these words of wisdom give your own words wings today. Write on!
