So I decided it was time to start my blog, (Friday 8th March 3:03 pm, inside sitting on the couch.)
So I thought it would be best to start with a few remarkable quotes from writers that I admire. In order to write well, I believe you need to look at those people who have been and still are active in the industry.
“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence you know.” – Ernest Hemingway
“Why does one begin to write? Because she feels misunderstood, I guess. Because it never comes out clearly enough when she tries to speak. Because she wants to rephrase the world, to take it in and give it back again differently…” —Nicole Krauss
“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.” —Enid Bagnold
“Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works.” —Virginia Woolf
“You don’t actually have to write anything until you’ve thought it out. This is an enormous relief, and you can sit there searching for the point at which the story becomes a toboggan and starts to slide.” —Marie de Nervaud, WD
