Words to Write By

Over at Two Writing Teachers, they shared some inspirational quotes to share with students and paste on the inside of writer's notebooks.

And if you are looking for ways to launch your notebooks - you should check out this great idea they got from a conference.

My resources for writer's notebooks are over on my wiki - including my favorite Unlucky Writer's handout that can be shared with parents and students.

And I leave you with some of my favorite quotes to inspire writing:

  • The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe. Gustav Flaubert
  • Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. William Wordsworth
  • If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing. Benjamin Franklin
  • You can't wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club. Jack London
  • Convince yourself that you are working in clay, not marble, on paper not eternal bronze: Let that first sentence be as stupid as it wishes. Jacques Barzun
