20 Must-Tweet Quotes That Will Help You Beat Writer’s Block

20 Must-Tweet Quotes That Will Help You Beat Writer’s BlockThe hardest part of writing isn't writing.

It's not proofreading. It's not formatting. It's not editing. 

The hardest part of writing is starting writing. 

So hard in fact, that I once wept into a sleeve of Oreos in my college dorm room due to my inability to put words on the screen the night before my final paper was due (not one of my finer moments, but applicable nonetheless.)

I mean, I could whine and moan about my nightmarish relationship with writer's block all day, but what good would that do? There would still be the same amount of work to be done, just less time to do it, right?

So let's save ourselves the pity party. We all know it's no fun.

So next time you feel writer's block on the horizon, read one of these quotes. Scribble down your favorite on a post-it and put it somewhere visible. They're here to inspire. 

Beat writer's block with the help of these inspiring quotes:

Still strugglin'?

We know that feeling all too well.

Which is why we went looking for tools that could help spark inspiration. 

Unfortunately, we found very little.

So we decided to create one. That's how BlogAbout was born (in a nutshell.) 

So before you find yourself weeping into a sleeve of Oreos like me, try this. 

(PS - If it works for you, let us know. We'd love the feedback...)
