“The worst thing you write is better than the best thing you did not write.”

I couldn’t find the source for this quote (every place I searched noted it as “Author Unknown), but I loved it and found it very inspiring for those times I just don’t feel like writing. By the way if this quote is yours, please let us know so we can give credit where credit is due.
