In Case You Were Thinking of Becoming a Writer | Motivational Quotes

Hi! Have you ever thought about becoming a writer?  Any kind of writer? Book writer. Poetry. Articles. Blogger.  Sharing a few inspirational quotes by female writers who have inspired me.


Other writers thought about becoming a writer, before they decided. Something got them started. When they were well on their way, something kept them going.


“When I was about eight, I decided that the most wonderful thing, next to a human being, was a book.”
― Margaret Walker (1915 – 1998)
(Dr. Margaret Abigail Walker Alexander)

the truth is furiously knocking.”
