The write stuff

42-15214588The other day when I said to  my little albion that I am a writer she paused for a second and she replied with  a mischievous expression ‘we are all writers in my class,  we are writing all day!’ I didn’t have any other option other than saying  ‘Yes sure, you have absolutely right! ‘ thinking at the same time  about  us, the bloggers, we are all writers we are writing  writing, writing most of us in a regular basis.  So I choose some quotations which have some  beams of wit .

‘Write without pay until somebody offers to pay you. If nobody offers within three years, sawing wood is what you intended for ‘ Mark Twain 

‘And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.  The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.’  Sylvia Plath

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

‘The time to begin writing an article is when you have finished it to your satisfaction.  By that time you begin to clearly and logically perceive what it is you really want to say’  Mark Twain

‘Easy reading is damn hard writing.’ Nathaniel Hawthorne

‘A good style should show no signs of effort.  What is written should seem a happy accident.’W. Somerset Maugham, Summing Up, 1938

‘I try to leave out the parts that people skip’. Elmore Leonard

Something from me  about publishing  a book  ‘The best thing you have to do after handing your book to your agent is to put a copy to your drawer next to your bed and  pray.’

And don’t forget  the three secrets of writing a book  ‘writing, writing, writing’ and after finishing it ‘editing, editing, editing’.
