Favorite Quotes

"I have long since decided that if you wait for the perfect time to write,
you'll never write. There is no time that isn't flawed somehow."

- Margaret Atwood

"Practice, practice, practice writing. Writing is a craft that requires both
talent and acquired skills. You learn by doing, by making mistakes and then
seeing where you went wrong."

Jeffrey A. Carver

"Work every day. No matter what has happened the day or night before, get
up and bite on the nail."

- Ernest Hemingway

"There are so many different kinds of writing and so many ways to work that
the only rule is this: do what works. Almost everything has been tried and found to succeed for somebody. The methods, even the ideas of successful writers
contradict each other in a most heartening way, and the only element I find
common to all successful writers is persistence-an overwhelming determination
to succeed."

- Sophy Burnham

"Keep in mind that the person to write for is yourself. Tell the story that you
most desperately want to read."

- Susan Isaacs
