Quotes About Writing

"If they give you ruled paper, write the other way." ~ Juan Ramon Jimenez


"Our eyes flow over dialogue like butter on the hood of a hot car." ~ Chuck Wendig


"Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell." ~ William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White, The Elements of Style


"We write to taste life twice." ~ Anais Nin
