Merry Freaking Christmas To You Guys

I said I’d do this near the end of the year. And it’s the end of the year. I’d have done this a little later, but let’s face it. I haven’t posted anything in a really long time(I apologize, I haven’t felt like it, and I have been trying. But when you got writer’s block what can you do?) and I’m probably not going to until the new year, maybe February(Watch, I’m gonna post this and tomorrow I’m going to wake up and write four or five things.

Anyway, over the year or so I’ve been blogging, and you guys have been reading, I’ve gotten a writing quote every time I posted a story or something(Up until recently, maybe they ran out of quotes, maybe they found it troublesome to do it, I don’t know, but I really liked it and felt like it helped to inspire writers to keep on writing. But that’s my opinion). And I’ve been collecting a few of them. And I thought at the end of every year why not share some of the inspiration I got to make me a better writer to some of my readers? Keep in mind these are quotes, I will include who said/wrote them first as well, and I did copy them correct if you’re wondering.
