More Quotes About Writing, Part III

Where is this year going?! I’ve been blogging for three months now! Anyway, here are my chosen quotes about writing for the month:

“Don’t think of literary form. Let it get out as it wants to. Overtell it in the matter of detail – cutting comes later. The form will develop in the telling. Don’t make the telling follow the form.” – John Steinbeck

“The main thing is to write a lot, to keep yourself immersed in the element of poetry, to stay deep in the creative possibilities.” – James Dickey

You must not suppose, because I am a man of letters, that I never tried to earn a honest living.” – George Bernard Shaw

“Every person you meet – and everything you do in life – is an opportunity to learn. That’s important to all of us, but most of all to a writer because a writer can use anything.” – Tom Clancy

And the one I really need to remember:
“If you write a hundred short stories, and they’re all bad that doesn’t mean you’ve failed. You only fail if you stop writing.” – Ray Bradbury


Thoughts, anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
