“Writing is not a hobby. Collecting stamps or coins is a hobby. Writing is a calling.”
Barbara Abercrombie, A Year of Writing Dangerously: 365 Days of Inspiration and Encouragement

“Among the few consolations of what has been called writer’s block is the assurance that, so long as one has it, one is, indeed, a writer.

Barbara Abercrombie, Kicking In the Wall: A Year of Writing Exercises, Prompts, and Quotes to Help You Break Through Your Blocks and Reach Your Writing Goals

“At a desk, in front of a computer, my mind goes blank, but as soon as I take off (to the supermarket, to Australia), inspiration strikes. Journeys are the midwives of books. — ALAIN DE BOTTON”
