Writing Tips And Quotes From Famous Authors

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”—Toni Morrison

 

“If you’re using dialogue, say it aloud as you write it. Only then will it have the sound of speech.”—John Steinbeck

 

“Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come.”—Victor Hugo

“Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates…or making friends. In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life as well. It’s about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.”—Stephen King

 

“Trust dreams. Trust your heart, and trust your story.”—Neil Gaiman

 

“You can’t wait for inspiration; you have to go after it with a club.”—Jack London

“Do not judge me by my successes; judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”—Nelson Mandela

 

“The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.”—Maya Angelou

 

“Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson

“That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald

 

“Possibly, then, writing has to do with darkness, and a desire or perhaps a compulsion to enter it, and, with luck, to illuminate it, and to bring something back out to the light.”—Margaret Atwood

 

“Never use a long word where a short one will do.”—George Orwell

“Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t ‘try’ to do things. You simply ‘must’ do things.”—Ray Bradbury

 

“It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”—Ursula K. Le Guin

 

“Show up, show up, show up, and after a while the muse shows up too.” —Isabel Allende
