✎ 15+ Wallpapers for Writers

Many authors and writing guides say this: make writing a part of your life. Make it routine, make it a job, make it count. Sound advice. But sometimes you need a shortcut to help you take the first step…

Like seeing it every time you turn on your writing space, the mother of all procrastination: the computer.

Months ago, I made this simple wallpaper for myself:

I am a writer

You’re welcome to use this if you want, though I can’t see why you would after seeing the amazing ones below!

I wouldn’t say it helped me achieve zen and spit out chapter after chapter. In fact, it didn’t make much impact on my lack of writing routine. But there was something about seeing this reminder when I turned on my laptop, whether it was to do schoolwork or go on youtube. It made me want to write something, or at the least spend some time with my characters and find out the latest gossip in their lives – lives that were waiting to be written.

So with that in mind, here are some wallpapers to get you started!

  1. Those wallpapers are great!
    But comment attributed to Ernest Hemingway –
    “All you have to do is write one sentence. Write the truest sentence you know.”

    Quite obviously he was never a participant in NaNoWriMo.
    Unless of course he wrote his ‘very true’ sentence over and over again until he got 50,000 words from it.

    • I’m happy you like them! Mine stares out at me every day, just a simple but nice reminder ;) Sometimes I consider bringing back out the antique screensaver just so I could put one of these babies on, haha!
