Worthy to Remember

Snoopy The Writing Life

The following are some of my favorite quotes from authors about writing:

         “All the best cutting is done when one is sick of writing.”
                                                                      ~ John Fowles ~

         “The first draft of anything is shit.”
                                                                      ~ Ernest Hemingway ~

         “A writer is somebody for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.”
                                                                      ~ Thomas Mann ~

         “A fish out of water is a dead fish, and a genius kept from his art is often a simpleton.”
                                                                      ~ Lajos Egri ~

These are posted on the wall behind my desk. It helps me to know that I’m not alone–and not the first to come to these same conclusions.
