I just ran across Lis’Anne’s Budding Blog where she has posted the link to a wonderful, inspirational site for writers, and I thought I would pass it along.
Write Attitude opens with a slideshow of pretty pictures overlaid with inspirational quotes and facts about writers. Madeleine L’Engle was rejected 101 times. She was just getting started. J.A. Konrath’s Whiskey Sour was rejected 450 times before it sold. Four-hundred and fifty. That’s still sinking in. (FAIR WARNING: If you’re at work you might want to mute the sound first, as there is music accompanying the slideshow which automatically starts.)
I think my favorite quote was from Christopher Reeve who said, “Don’t give up. Don’t lose hope. Don’t sell out.”
Others are really humorous, but that’s just the beginning. The site also has articles, resources, a page of author’s journeys, and one of inspirational quotes.
Let’s end with this:
“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Ok, where are the Kleenex®?
