|I love books, I love writing, I love quotations|
Today I share favorite quotations of mine. All are on the discipline of writing.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed collecting them:
You must write, write, and write some more every day at a set time...If you keep writing, ideas will come to you.--Alexander Dumas
The young writer would be a fool to follow a theory. Teach yourself by your own mistakes; people learn only by error.--William Faulkner
Atmosphere stands always for the elimination of the artist. Get your good strong phrases, fresh and vivid; write intensively, not exhaustingly or lengthily; don't narrate-paint! Draw! Build! Create! Better one thousand words that are builded than a whole book of dashed-off stuff. Damn you! Forget you! And the world will remember you!--Jack London
I don't wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to earth.--Pearl S. Buck
I prefer to underwrite. Simple, clear as a country creek.--Truman Capote
See you in print,

P.S. I also keep a blog at Griefcase.net. Just saying.
