I like uplifting quotes. I saw this on a blog a year or so ago.
Failing sucks. No two ways about it.
The bright side to failing?
It means you showed up.

So let's all get out there and 'Fail Better.'


  1. Great post! I love this part - "The bright side to failing? It means you showed up." So true!

  2. Oh, that IS a good one! Failing on a higher plane is indeed what we really keep aiming for with writing.

    1. They are so inspirational. It would be wonderful to be someone who utters brilliance. ;)

  4. Great quote. And you're right, the only ones who don't fail are the ones who don't try.

  5. The more I work on writing, the more I feel like I'm sticking out into new territory, so I like inspiring quotes too. Here's my favorite: “Writing or making anything—a poem, a bird feeder, a chocolate cake—has self-respect in it. You’re working. You’re trying. You’re not lying down on the ground, having given up.” ~ Sharon Olds Nice post for the letter "Q".

  6. That is a good quote. Even if you failed, at least you tried! That's better than letting the opportunity pass you by.

  7. Hahaha. I am great at failing. I'm on my third novel and hoping to garner more rejections than ever (2 so far).

  8. I love this quote. I will definitely try failing better.

  9. A very inspirational quote. Looking forward to more from you. :)
