7 Favorite Quotes for Children’s Authors (UBC Day 12)

Quotes about Writing, Characters, and Life

Every first draft is perfect, because all a first draft has to do is exist.

You may not always write well, but you can edit a bad page. You can't edit a blank page.

People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.

Every day is filled with opportunities to be amazed, surprised, enthralled... alive.

Fill your paper with the breathing of your heart.

What matters to you? Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
