Quote of the Week~March 8th, 2013 via

“Write freely and as rapidly as possible and throw the whole thing on paper. Never correct or rewrite until the whole thing is down. Rewrite in process is usually found to be an excuse for not going on. It also interferes with flow and rhythm which can only come from a kind of unconscious association with the material.

~John Steinbeck

“A writer is a writer not because she writes well and easilybecause she has amazing talentbecause everything she does is golden. In my view, a writer is a writer because even when there is no hopeeven when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.”

~Junot Diaz

“A perfectly healthy sentence, it is true, is extremely rare.
For the most part we miss the hue and fragrance of the thought;
as if we could be satisfied with the dews of the morning
or evening without their colors, or the heavens without their azure.”

~Henry David Thoreau

“If the artist
does not fling himself,
without reflecting,
into his work,
as Curtis flung himself
into the yawning gulf,
as the soldier flings himself
into the enemy’s trenches,
and if, once in this crater,
he does not work
like a miner on whom
the walls of his gallery
have fallen in;
if he contemplates difficulties
instead of overcoming them one by one…
he is simply looking on at the suicide of
his own talent.”
~Honore de Balzac

Quote of the Week~February 15th, 2013 via

“Sometimes people say to me, “I want to write, but I have five kids, a full-time job, a wife who beats me, a tremendous debt to my parents,” and so on.
I say to them, “There is no excuse. If you want to write, write. This is your life. You are responsible for it. You will not live forever. Don’t wait. Make the time now, even if it is ten minutes once a week.”

~Natalie Goldberg

Wednesday Wallpaper ~September 26th~ Ignite Your Creativity

“The only way you can
write the truth is to
assume that what you
set down will never be read.
Not by any other person,
and not even by yourself at
some later date.
Otherwise you begin
excusing yourself.
You must see the writing
as emerging like a long scroll of
ink from the index finger of
your right hand; you must
see your left hand erasing it.”

~Margaret Atwood
