Quote of the Week via ~ March28th, 2014

ink“I have advice for people who want to write. I don’t care whether they’re 5 or 500. There are three things that are important: First, if you want to write, you need to keep an honest, unpublishable journal that nobody reads, nobody but you. Where you just put down what you think about life, what you think about things, what you think is fair and what you think is unfair. And second, you need to read. You can’t be a writer if you’re not a reader. It’s the great writers who teach us how to write. The third thing is to write. Just write a little bit every day. Even if it’s for only half an hour — write, write, write.” ~Madeleine L’Engle

  1. Thanks for this post.

    Yes, I very much agree. I’ve written over 40 years of private journals. Only in the last ten do I write regularly for publication, mostly nonfiction so far. The fiction craft and skill takes time and thought to make it work, after life is stranger than fiction, so novelist and short fiction writers must make sense in fictional worlds they create.
