Over the past two years I’ve been writing a novel. And while doing so I jotted down snippets of the experience. Here are some of the quotes I wrote to try to describe how I was feeling or to keep me persevering as the book came to fruition. I love supporting artists, and would love to support your quotes, too! If you leave a comment or post your website below, I’ll tweet and share your inspirations for quote week!

Don’t invent a ceiling that’s not there. Imagine anything. Write your own universe.
