Being a writer isn’t always an easy gig. There are moments of struggle, of invented blocks that we use as an excuse to procrastinate and there is the thrilling, relieving seconds when a story is complete and we’ve finally wrote the two most beautiful words in the English language: The End.

To help you writers among us, we’ve gathered a few brutally honest quotes about writing from the best and brightest in the game. We hope you’ll take these nuggets of wisdom to heart and for the love of God, don’t you dare stop writing!
