Weekly Muse #18: Inspirational Quotes Round 2!

Alex Steele today to bring you some inspiring quotes for your dose of muse! I don't know if you remember, but my first ever Muse post was inspiring quotes. These were quotes from some of my favorite books, you can see it here. This week I'm doing something similar but specifically with writing quotes. I have most of these taped to the wall above my desk so that I can see them while I'm writing, to help me feel inspired. I hope maybe they can inspire you too!

I was going to do a brief explanation of why I like each quote, why it speaks to me. Instead, I'm going to let the quotes speak for themselves.
