Do you have a quote journal? I used to keep one in high school, filled with funny things friends said, or snippets of conversations I overheard, quotes from books or poems. Unearthing the notebook recently made me think of starting one up again, because sometimes there’s nothing quite like copying favorite lines with your own pen, in your own handwriting. This routine is especially useful on days when we doubt ourselves and the value of our words. So come back here whenever you need, and know other writers have been where you are, staring at the blank page, mustering courage.
