Let the Fireworks Begin! by Sandra Ardoin

We love the Fourth of July in the United States. It’s a day to celebrate our country's beginnings, but it’s also a day when we express that celebration through family gatherings, picnics, boating on lakes, parades, and FIREWORKS! From the sizzle of sparklers to the whistle and boom of the big guys, we love these beautiful symbols of our joy. Sometimes, we can only stare with a sense of awe and utter a quiet "Ooh!".

Isn't it like that on those occasions when we’re writing and the words are flowing almost independent of our need to think about them? FIREWORKS on paper and on the screen!

Today I thought I’d share some encouraging writing quotes…like special fireworks to inspire writers. I hope they set off a big BOOM! in your writing life. 

Nothing will happen until you make it happen.

Don't let the fear of criticism prevent you from sharing the gift God has given you.

Dig deep and make the reader feel.

Edit. Tighten. Edit some more. 

Keep that power on high until you've written "The End!"

So go on! Light those word sparks and let them explode from your fingers.

What is the most inspiring writing quote you have read?
