Fantasy in Blue by Josephine Wall

 

Vita Sackville-West

It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop.

 

 

Walter Wellesley “Red” Smith

There’s nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein.

 

 

E.L. Doctorow

Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.

 

 

Elmore Leonard

I try to leave out the parts that people skip.

 

 

Toni Morrison

If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.

 

 

Logan Pearsall Smith, “All Trivia,” Afterthoughts, 1931

What I like in a good author is not what he says, but what he whispers.

 

 

Sharon O’Brien

Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn’t wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say.

 

 

William Wordsworth

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.

    ” There’s nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein.” great one!

  2. Thank you bloggingexperience for this wonderful little blog. I am finding myself here more often to read what you have to say..

    Although i do not consider myself a writer, it is wonderful to tinker with the notes upon the scale, like a little kid who finds a piano and plays chop sticks… or play some secret notes of made up melodies nobody has heard before or ever wants to hear again….

    The quote above…”What I like in a good author is not what he says, but what he whispers.” reminds me of your blog

    Thank you for sharing… tiandra
