Insecure Writer's Support Group

It's the first Wednesday of the month and time for another Insecure Writer's Support Group. If you're an insecure writer or just looking to give other writers some much needed support, check us out here. And a huge shout out to our fearless Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh for being the greatest support of all!

I don't feel much like griping about my struggles with writing or publication, or the fact that I feel pretty downtrodden, so instead I thought I would share the words of people much more interesting and successful than myself. So here are a few of my favorite quotes to inspire you in your writing this month. 

"Books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can take from the world the books that embody man's eternal fight against tyranny. In this war, we know, books are the weapon." 
-- Franklin D. Roosevelt 

"A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic."
-- Carl Sagan

"There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island."
-- Walt Disney 


  1. Those are awesome quotes. And all so very true.

  2. Take these quotes and build yourself up. You can achieve what you desire. It may not be this minute but you will triumph! I love these quotes

  3. I love that middle quote, some stories really are full of magic.

  4. Nice! Sometimes we need to vent and sometimes we don't. Thanks very much for sharing those quotes. They really resonate.

  5. I'm so sorry you're struggling right now. Writing is such a curious thing, thrilling, maddening, escalating and depressing all at once. I hope things turn soon!

  6. Love a good bookish quote :)

  7. I'm firmly in the downtrodden camp. I'm somehow mired in a chapter revision and can't get out. For over two weeks. Gah! I hope both of us get in a better space soon. :)

  8. I'm sorry you're feeling feel downtrodden S.L. Sometimes life does that and it's always hard. Walt's words are encouraging though.

  9. Okay, I thought I already submitted a comment, but somehow it didn't go through.

    I think Sagan's quote is so true. I'm sending you good vibes to bring your spirits up! :)
