10 quotes about writing

“Just write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens. Most of my friends who are put on that diet have very pleasant careers.” – Ray Bradbury

“Sometimes the ideas just come to me. Other times I have to sweat and almost bleed to make ideas come. It’s a mysterious process, but I hope I never find out exactly how it works. I like a mystery, as you may have noticed.” – J.K. Rowling

“Almost anyone can be an author; the business is to collect money and fame from this state of being.” – A.A. Milne

“I am irritated by my own writing. I am like a violinist whose ear is true, but whose fingers refuse to reproduce precisely the sound he hears within.” – Gustave Flaubert

“The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Always be a poet, even in prose.” – Charles Baudelaire

“A word after a word after a word is power.” – Margaret Atwood

“Read, read, read. Read everything – trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.” – William Faulkner

“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.”  – Jack Kerouac

“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”  – Stephen King
