3. 10 quotes on writing


I think one of the most important things a writer can do is read, read, read. When I’m reading, I make a note of things that jump out at me and I come back to those words again and again.

1- Tracey E. Dils: An event in the plot needs to compel (your character) to change.

2- Michel Chabon: I just add words. Even bad words. Words that I know, as I type them, I will end up cutting. The point is to get to one thousand.

3- Toni Morrison: If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.

4- James Michener: I’m not a very good writer, but I’m an excellent rewriter.

5- William Wordsworth: Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.

7- Joan Baez: It seems to me that those songs that have been any good, I have nothing much to do with the writing of them. The words have just crawled down my sleeve and come out on the page.

8- Ernest Hemingway: We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.

9- Henriette Anne Klauser: The best antidote to writer’s block is … to write.”

10- Blaise Pascal: I have made this longer, because I have not had time to make it shorter.
