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.
