You know you've felt the same way sometimes. And so have many other fine and discriminating minds! I love collecting quotes -- especially ones about writing. Below are some of my favorites about the pain of writing. Do you have any to share?
How to start a novel: First thing, defrost the refrigerator. (Ernest Hemingway)
Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank piece of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead. (Gene Fowler)
Good stories are not written. They are rewritten. (Phyllis Whitney)
I only write when I'm inspired, and I make sure I'm inspired every morning at 9 a.m.
Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working. (Pablo Picasso -- Hey, it applies to writing, too.)
Why do you keep sending my stories back? You're supposed to print them and make me rich and famous. What is it with you? (Snoopy)
