Writing isn’t about these…

Stephen King

Writing isn’t about making money,
getting famous,
getting dates,
getting laid,
or making friends.

In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It’s about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.

Stephen King’s “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft”

Written in 2000, this book is part autobiography, part writing advice. Another motivating line from it goes like this: “You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”
