And finally, for those who are following along with my quest to complete 52 writing exercises this year, (go here for the first one,) this week’s exercise is going to be short and sweet, in case you’re going to the conference like me.

Writing Exercise #11

Let’s go on a quote hunt! Get your Goggle or Bing on and search for some inspirational, motivating quotes from authors, illustrators, artists, or what have you. Write them down in your notebook for whenever you need a pick-me-up, or better yet, print out images that inspire you. I glued my favorites to the inside of my writing journal:


“Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.” Christian D. Larson.

“So long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say.” Virginia Woolf

“Nothing is impossible. The word itself says, I’M POSSIBLE.” Audrey Hepburn.

Have fun with this one!

Happy writing and drawing! 🙂


About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at As The Eraser Burns, Joyful Miles, and Write, Run, Rejoice. In the past, she's been a waitress, telemarketer, cook, real estate agent, and during her college days, a costumed character at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt her at night.) At the age of thirty, she pursued her dream of being a writer. Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!
