Writing Quotes

The following quotes are collected in honor, and with encouragement to all writers, for only another writer can possibly understand what goes into writing.
It is often plodding and frustrating. Words slipping out of your grasp; sentences cranky, and refusing to fall into shape. If, when this happens, you ignore the trouble signs and keep on writing, alas, you will often find yourself doing a lot of erasing.
At other times, though, ideas seem to find their own energy. They cannot wait to grab you by the lapels, to sweep you along by the music of their cadences, the power of their phrasing, the sheer rightness of what they have to communicate. At times like this, one can often feel more like a secretary than an author.
So whether you are stuck in a rut and need some encouragement, or just looking to hear the thoughts of like minded persons, you will surely enjoy these fantastic collection of writing quotes.
