Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
Substitute “damn” every time you’re inclined to write “very”; your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.
There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.
Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation.
The most important thing is to read as much as you can, like I did. It will give you an understanding of what makes good writing and it will enlarge your vocabulary.
J. K. Rowling
To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it’s about, but the inner music that words make.
Writing is an extreme privilege but it’s also a gift. It’s a gift to yourself and it’s a gift of giving a story to someone.
Writing is the supreme solace.
W. Somerset Maugham
