Quote I Love: Believe in yourself and in your own voice

For all you writers out there…

“Believe in yourself and in your own voice, because there will be times in this business when you will be the only one who does. Take heart from the knowledge that an author with a strong voice will often have trouble at the start of his or her career because strong, distinctive voices sometimes make editors nervous. But in the end, only the strong survive.”

  1. Oh, Sloan…I LOVE this quote. I’m submitting now and as you may relate to…self doubt is like pus on a pimple…you have to squeeze it out. EEEWW! Did I just say that? Anyway, if you don’t mind…may I use this quote in my blog post tomorrow?

    • Yay! Congratulations on submitting, Leigh!! Definitely, you can use the quote. Such a good point about self doubt. I find it can really build upon itself if you aren’t careful and keep it in check. Best of luck!

  2. A very timely post – especially within the group the past few months – and very heartening. Thank you.
