Is It Writing Quote Time?

Yes, it is!

"You can't wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club."
– Jack London

"There are so many different kinds of writing and so many ways to work that the only rule is this: do what works. Almost everything has been tried and found to succeed for somebody. The methods, even the ideas of successful writers, contradict each other in a most heartening way, and the only element I find common to all successful writers is persistence -- an overwhelming determination to succeed."
Sophy Burnham

Everyone has their own style. A lot of time is lost trying to 'follow rules' ... I say everyone should following their hearts and pens when writing.
