10 Motivational Quotes And Mantras To Power You Through NaNoWriMo | Writer’s Relief

Will you be one of the hundreds of thousands of writers trying to complete November’s National Novel Writing Month? NaNoWriMo challenges us to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days—which means authors nationwide will be hunkered down, swilling coffee, and furiously typing long after their fingers have gone numb. If you plan to join this dedicated (and sleep-deprived) group, Writer’s Relief presents ten motivational quotes and mantras to help you keep going when the going gets tough and your plot reaches a potential dead end.

Butt in chair. Hands on keyboard.

Be an unstoppable force. Write with an imaginary machete strapped to your thigh. This is not wishy-washy, polite, drinking-tea-with-your-pinkie-sticking-out stuff. It’s who you want to be, your most powerful self. Write your books. Finish them, then make them better. Find the way. No one will make this dream come true for you but you.— Laini Taylor
You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.— Winston Churchill
No thinking, that comes later. You write your first draft with your heart.
Be positive, patient and persistent.
