When you’re struggling with your writing, you can always turn to Twitter for a quick pick-me-up! Search by the hashtag #amwriting and you’ll usually stumble across a goldmine of short, snappy Tweets that sum up the wonderful, dreadful experience of writing, and encourage you to power on.
Here are some of my favourite inspiring (and just funny) #amwriting Tweets from this month!

To everyone who is writing at the moment, keep going! You’ve won half the battle just by starting.
