Free Printable: 5 Writing Mantras to Live By Everyday

Filed in Motivation Mondays by on September 19, 2016 12 Comments

Most days as a writer are fun. Full of creativity, where imagination and story and folklore are limitless and boundless, and the only thing holding you back is the speed at which your fingers can type.

Other days, however, the process of having to be brilliant, creative and original can be taxing; it can leave you feeling drained, insecure or ready to throw in the towel altogether.

If there’s something we know about writing, it’s that there is no truth to those little voices telling you to quit—and the best way to combat them is to dial in to some truth and plow ahead. Print off this beautiful printable of writing mantras (right-click and save, then print on regular 8 1/2 x 11 paper or better yet, card stock) and frame or hang somewhere near your writing desk. Repeat these mantras every day, and forge ahead. You’ve got everything it takes!

    I woke up at 4:40am today ready to pitch months of work over board. “I can’t do this,” is about as far as east is from west in my life experience, but there I stood! This is timely encouragement per your mantras.
    Many thanks. Shalom,

    Thank you! So helpful I just asked God why II felt so drained and then I pulled up this on your website. Writing has made me come alive in a new way; though, today I was questioning it all.
