Whether you are writing website copy, brochure copy, or your next blog post, congratulations, you’ve made the leap. The web necessitated it, and you became a writer.
In order to stand out from the vast amount of competition out there, you need to make your writing interesting. You need to tell a good story.
A blank computer screen, or a blank piece of paper can be intimidating. Here are a few writing quotes I picked up that were scattered around the Internet. Maybe they’ll help:
