Found some interesting writing quotes from Writers Digest. I’m sure you’ve all read them. But some are pretty funny.
“The road to hell is paved with works-in-progress.”
My road to hell is a mile and a half long. Everything I have I feel is a work in progress. Do published authors feel like even their published works feel like it could have used more? It sounds like a scary road.
“The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”
That’s one that my mother can agree with.
“Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.”
“Write. Rewrite. When not writing or rewriting, read. I know of no shortcuts.”
-Larry L. King
“When your story is ready for rewrite, cut it to the bone. Get rid of every ounce of excess fat. This is going to hurt; revising a story down to the bare essentials is always a little like murdering children, but it must be done.”
“I would advise anyone who aspires to a writing career that before developing his talent he would be wise to develop a thick hide.”
