Press Release: Write On! Daily Kick-Ass Writing Inspiration

Seattle, April 2nd 2014

30 Day Books present their newest app: Write On! Daily Kick-Ass Writing Inspiration: 365 Quotes & Tips from the World’s Best Writers.

Write On! is an app to educate, inspire, and let the world’s best writers mentor writers everywhere on how to kick some writing ass.

The why behind this app:

Good writers need to write everyday in order to improve their craft, but staying disciplined and motivated is the hard part. Write On! delivers a beautifully presented quote that educates and / or inspires in just 30-60 seconds. It’s a great way to start any writer’s day, and is a daily reminder of their desire to be writing.

Each morning writers will be prompted to open up the app to receive guidance and motivation from a writer who obviously knows his or her stuff. After all, when Stephen King gives you writing commands, how can you defy the man?

Example quotes:

“Any word you have to hunt for in a thesaurus is the wrong word. There are no exceptions to this rule.” – Stephen King

“Don’t say that as a boy your grandmother used to read to you, unless at that stage of her life she really was a boy, in which case you have probably thrown away a better intro.” ― Christopher Hitchens

“I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Many people never listen.” – Ernest Hemingway

“Nouns and verbs are the guts of the language. Beware of covering up with adjectives and adverbs.” ― A.B. Guthrie Jr.

Quotes can be shared with other writing friends via email and twitter. Writers quoted include Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Ella Fitzgerald, J.K Rowling, Chuck Wendig, Pam Houston and many, many more.
