Writing & Writers


Writing is like prostitution. First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.
Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn’t.
–Mark Twain
I write for the same reason I breathe – because if I didn’t, I would die.
–Isaac Asimov
Writing a novel is like driving at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
–E.L. Doctorow
“Every writer is a frustrated actor who recites his lines in the hidden auditorium of his skull.”
–Rod Serling (Great quote, but wholly false in my opinion)
The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books.
–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.
–G.K. Chesterton
I can’t believe it! Reading and writing actually paid off!
–Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons
If a young writer can refrain from writing, he shouldn’t hesitate to do so.
–Andre Gide
Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.
–Kurt Vonnegut
