The Writers Alley: Favorite writing quotes

The Writers Alley: Favorite writing quotes | Garry Rogers | Scoop.it

Good writing is like a windowpane. ~ George Orwell   There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are. ~ W. Somerset Maugham If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it. ~ Anais Nin    When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature. ~ Ernest Hemingway  Easy reading is hard writing. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne   To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it's about, but the inner music that words make. ~ Truman Capote   The most important thing is to read as much as you can, like I did. It will give you an understanding of what makes good writing and it will enlarge your vocabulary. ~ J. K. Rowling
