Writing Inspiration | Quotes Posts !


Not that long ago I took a break from blogging because ..

a) I was going on holiday
b) I was exhausted and getting some serious writers block
c) I was lacking the motivation to do it !

So now I'm back from holiday ( It was lovely and I had a great time ) and I'm bursting with ideas that I am really excited to share with you and I've got my energy back and as a result I'm now really excited to be blogging again !

So yesterday I started giving my blog a bit of a makeover! It's not quite finished because I'm definitely not a technological genius hence why the pages a long the top are currently well .. half not there but give me a week and I'm sure I'll work it out ! But I really wanted it to look a bit more fresh and professional . I'm also thinking about changing the colours of the bubbles in the header to go with the Autumn/Winter seasons, what do you think ? :)

Anyway, so in my recovery from this serious case of writers block, I found some wonderful quotes about the beauty of writing ! So I thought I'd share some with you now .



"Read a thousand books and your words will flow like a river "
- Virginia Woolf

" Write a page a day, only 300 words and in a year you have written a novel " 
- Stephen King

" A writer is a world trapped in a person "
- Victor Hugo

" Words are in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible form of magic "
- J.K. Rowling

" The first draft is telling yourself the story "
- Terry Prachett

" I write to give myself strength . I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I'm afraid of"
- Joss Whedon

" This is how you do it : You sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it's done. It's that easy, and that hard. " 
- Neil Gaiman

" There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately no one knows what they are " 
-  W. Somerset Maugham

" Fill your paper with the beatings of your heart " 
- William Wordsworth ( This One is my Favourite ) 

" I write only because there is a voice within me that will not be still " 
- Sylvia Plath ( I also quite like this one hehe ) 

I loved researching all these and found them all really inspiring so I hope they give you a lil bit of writing inspiration as well ! Which were your favourites ? Or do you have a different favourite quote or saying about writing ? I'd love to hear it down in the comments :) Also let me know if theres any specific types or subjects of quotes you'd like to see in this " Quotes Posts ! " Series and I'll do my best to get them up.

Before I go, A lovely blogger called Crystal ( You can find her blog Crystallized Daisies here ) has recently started a YouTube channel and it's absolutely brilliant ! Her last video was a sketch style sort of thing and was hilarious . So if you have a few minutes definitely go check it out and subscribe, you wont be disappointed ! I'll leave a link here :)

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

lots of love, Marianne xxx

  2. I love these types of posts, it's always so nice to get a little writing inspo! I love the quote "as a writer, you ask yourself to dream while awake." -Aimee Bender. I often feel like writing stretches the imagination no matter what it's about! Thanks for your positive posts Marianne, I adore your blog! Also, I'm all for colors being changed with the season!

    1. Aww I'm so glad you like them, I'm probably going to turn my quotes posts into a series so they'll be around a lil bit more :) Aww that quote is so beautiful, I can't completely agree with you and I think that's what I love about writing so much <3 I love positivity and definitely think the world needs an extra dash of it so I just want to help in any way I could, it took a long time for me to get to where I am and I've still got a way to go yet but I've learnt a lot about positivity and I want to help others :)

      lots of love, Marianne xxx

  3. The blog layout is shaping up nicely so far!! I was also thinking of giving my blog a "Fall-list" in the anticipation of the beautiful season.
    Glad to hear you had a lovely holiday! I totally get writer's block myself and sometimes, it's so nice to just take a break :)
    Haha, I totally love Crystal's YouTube channel as well! She's hilarious!
    Love the inspiring quotes, thanks for posting! Happy Thursday :)

  6. Okay first of all! Love this new lay out :D <3 I can't wait to see what new stuff you have coming up because seriously you are a talented writer.
    I'm so glad you've had sometime to relax and unwind. I definitely know what you mean by getting the writers block. I always find it helpful to start a new post, save it, leave, and then come back to it once I've had time to think about it throughout the day :) I'd have to say that my favorite quote was the "Fill your paper with the beating of your heart" it's so whimsical :D. Aww :) Marianne!! <3 That is so sweet of you!!! Thank you so much for the kind shout out it really means a lot to me. I'm currently at the library waiting for my next class to start and I'm smiling like an idiot so I hope no one noticed haha. Have a very lovely day Marianne x <3

That is so so kind of you, I'm really looking forward to writing and sharing all my ideas with you :) I do that a lot, then I always have a title to write about if I happen to have time . That's my favourite as well !!! We're in sync hehe ;) No worries , you deserve as many views as possible on your fabulous channel :)

  7. These are great quotes. I too have been experiencing writers block but I am starting to find my way out of it. I started writing a story a few months ago and I am just now getting back into the zone for writing it. I think my favorite is " a writer is a world trapped in a person" but they are all very inspiring. :)

    I'd like to personally invite you to help me with my party collab ( if you want to / have the time) because I know you are full of wonderful ideas. Go here for more information>>> http://adorkabledarling.blogspot.com/2015/09/party-collab-and-youre-invited.html

  9. Words are magic, J.K Rowling. I love this so much! It's okay to take a break from writing though, I'm just starting to write again since I had exams last month, and I still haven't got that motivation yet! Eep.

    1. Me too ! That one really is a very beautiful quote :) Yeah it is, sometimes you just need a rest or have things that you have to let take priority like exams and that's completely okay ! I'm sure you'll get back into it soon and I can't wait to read all the fabulous posts that come when you are :)

  11. Loving this new look, very cool and totally in line with your blog! I would love to see Autumn/Winter bubbles that would be so freakin' amazing! Sometimes you just need to step away from the computer and let your brain gather ideas, you can't really force creativity and I think sometimes when you try your brain starts to feel fried. I am super excited to read what you have coming up, you got those mad writing skills that inspire me! "Fill your paper with the beatings of your heart" <3 Crystal is so amazing and funny, I just love her and so proud and happy to see her join YouTube! Your turn next maybe?!?! ;)
    Have a beautiful day Marianne! :)
