Blogger Writing Quotes

Because my daughter bullied me to use Facebook. When I did I was encouraged to write a blog instead. “What’s one of those?”, I asked my sister in law. ‘How do I do it?”, I asked. A friend joined in with the WordPress recommendation. I have now produced a daily diary since May 2012.

I think every horror writer will understand this: I write to exorcise my demons.

A quote from a piece I just posted yesterday – – “I had been in love with words all my life. It was time to honor them.” This is why I write.

I write because it is a way to feel happy and alive. Luisa Zambrotta

I write to relive the past or to explore human emotion. And I pursue publication to share with others who may be able to benefit, somehow, and so that others may know me a bit better. Becky Ross Michael

From Lucille Clifton: “People wish to be poets more than they wish to write poetry, and that’s a mistake. One should wish to celebrate more than one wishes to be celebrated.” Submitted by

I started writing because I liked it and found out I was good at it. It even became my career. But I started writing for my own purposes when I realized that writing was the way I could make my voice heard, sans interruptions. I also write to  “work it out.” Whether it’s an idea, an emotion, or a problem to be solved, writing helps me deal with it. And apparently I’m not alone: JeanMarie Olivieri,

These are my two favorite quotes about writing.“The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.” — Gustave Flaubert

“Writing is the best way to talk without being interrupted.” Jules Renard

I write because we orbit the moon. Bartholomew Barker.

A good quote can uplift you. It can encourage you when you feel like giving up. It can inspire you to punch those damn keys. Christian Mihai

      1. Sorry I missed your comment.

        And here’s my reason – “Writing makes me feel less alone and more purposeful. Furthermore, it is through writing I continue to unravel, comprehend and better myself as a human being.”

  2. I asked my friend Rolig, who writes programming scripts in Second Life, why she scripts. So …. Why do I script? Scripting’s an endless source of logic puzzles, and I can’t resist a good puzzle. Not only that, but there’s rarely only one way to solve a scripting challenge, so the game is to find the most efficient/compact/user-friendly solution possible. In a way, it’s like writing poetry, which I also do.

    Now, if you want a clean Latin translation of “I write. There I am.”, try Scribo. Ibi sum. On the other hand, if you really meant “I write, therefore I am” , you’re better off with Scribo ergo sum.
