Some Quotes about Writing

Quotes about Writing

“The scariest moment is always just before you start. After that, things can only get better.” 
Stephen King
“Sometimes the ideas just come to me. Other times I have to sweat and almost bleed to make ideas come. It’s a mysterious process, but I hope I never find out exactly how it works.” 
J.K. Rowling
"I have a huge editor in my head who's always making me miserable. But sometimes I try and let unconscious act out." 
David Chase 
"There came this point where I sat down with all my notebooks and I had to start to write, when I thought: this whole notion of writing for the person who understands nothing, the average reader... He has to die! And so the person I started writing for was the homicide detective." 

David Simon


“First, you write for yourself... always, to make sense of experience and the world around you. It’s one of the ways I stay sane." 
Bruce Springsteen


"First and foremost, you want to be truthful as a storyteller."
Terence Winter


"All is fair in love and songwriting." 
Norah Jones
"I don't believe that songwriting has to be profound, but I truly believe that it's a crime for you to go outta your way for it not to be." 
Steve Earle
“My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.”
Ernest Hemingway
If you want to really hurt your parents, the least you can do is go into the arts. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”
Kurt Vonnegut
