Writing isn't always fun. Sometimes it requires hours of staring at a blank page or computer screen with a cramped back and hungry stomach. Other times it's intrusion, noise and chores that stop the words mid-sentence. But when that special moment of completion comes...it's a small victory of accomplishment that every writer relishes. Even if it never becomes published, it's an individual creation using the power of words. A gift.
Here are some great quotes about writing:
If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. ~Toni Morrison
Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn't wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say. ~Sharon O'Brien
The wastebasket is a writer's best friend. ~Isaac Bashevis Singer
The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible. ~Vladimir Nabakov
When something can be read without effort, great effort has gone into its writing. ~Enrique Jardiel Poncela
Write your first draft with your heart. Re-write with your head. ~From the movie Finding Forrester
