Favorite Writing Quotes

I love quotes! Quotes are the way to my heart.

I love to write them, read them, save them, collect them, and I love to share them.

Today, I share quotes on inspiration...just a few.

"But the greatest thing about my art is this, that it can test in every way whether the bringing forth a mere image, an imposture, or a real and genuine offspring."--Plato

"Don't ask who's influenced me. A lion is made up of the lambs he's digested, and I've been reading all my life."--Giorgos Seferia

"The best thing you can do as an artist is disturb."--Liza Minnelli

"What is art? Nature concentrated."--Honore' de Balzac

"Literature is my utopia. Here I am not disfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourse of my book-friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness."--Helen Keller

"If you see magic in a fairy tale, you can face the future."--Danielle Steele

Writing Tip:

If you are like me, and write first drafts in long hand...find yourself a pen that suits you. It should fit like skin, glide swiftly across the page. It should not drag, skip, or bleed. I love my red fountain pen. I splurged and purchased a fine one as a birthday gift from me to me. But mostly, I write with a Pilot 07.

Here's to a great writing day.

What are you waiting for? Go!

Write like the wind.

See you in print,

"Come journal with me. Your book is yet to be."
