Write: TIPS FROM REAL WRITERS

I am an author…a writer. Sometimes…I just wish I knew what I was doing.

  1. Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be. – Mark Twain
  2. If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time — or the tools — to write. Simple as that. – Stephen King
  3. I would advise anyone who aspires to a writing career that before developing his talent he would be wise to develop a thick hide. — Harper Lee
  4. The first draft of everything is shit. -Ernest Hemingway
  5. Prose is architecture, not interior decoration. – Ernest Hemingway
  6. Write drunk, edit sober. – Ernest Hemingway
  7. You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club. ― Jack London
  8. Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout with some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand. — George Orwell
  9. Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative. – Oscar Wilde
  10. Don’t take anyone’s writing advice too seriously. – Lev Grossman

"I'd like to think of myself as a blended mix of Southern charm and humor. What I really am is a hot mess of sin and sass. Jesus loves me either way."
