Words of Inspiration for Writers

The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in, shock-proof, shit detector. This is the writer’s radar and all great writers have had it. – ERNEST HEMINGWAY

 

Writing books is the closest men ever come to childbearing. – NORMAN MAILER

 

Any man who can write a page of living prose adds something to our life, and the man who can, as I can, is surely the last to resent someone who can do it even better. An artist cannot deny art, nor would he want to. A lover cannot deny love.  – RAYMOND CHANDLER

 

I love being a writer, what I can’t stand is the paperwork.  – PETER DE VRIES

 

You can never correct your work well until you have forgotten it. – VOLTAIRE

 

Work on good prose has three steps: a musical stage when it is composed, an architectonic one when it is built, and a textile one when it is woven. – WALTER BENJAMIN
