"A writer never reads his work. For him, it is the unreadable, a secret, and he cannot remain face to face with it. A secret, because he is separated from it."
— Maurice Blanchot (via writingquotes)

"Some read to think, these are rare; some to write, these are common, and some read to talk, and these form the great majority."
— C.C. Colton (via writingquotes)

"Not getting bored of my own story and/or character is one of the main struggles I have had with novel writing, and I have put to bed big chunks of work that just didn’t sustain my interest."
— Aimee Bender (via writingquotes)

"Most really good fiction is compelled into being. It comes from a kind of uncalculated innocence. You need not have your ending in mind before you commence. Indeed, you need not be certain of exactly what’s going to transpire on page 2. If you know the whole story in advance, your novel is probably dead before you begin it. Give it some room to breathe, to change direction, to surprise you. Writing a novel is not so much a project as a journey, a voyage, an adventure."
— Tom Robbins (via writingquotes)

"Writing is really just a matter of writing a lot, writing consistently and having faith that you’ll continue to get better and better. Sometimes, people think that if they don’t display great talent and have some success right away, they won’t succeed. But writing is about struggling through and learning and finding out what it is about writing itself that you really love."
— Laura Kasischke (via writingquotes)

"For me, I think it was a little easier to write thinking that nobody was listening."
— Dan Kennedy (via writingquotes)

"I have taken as much as six years to prepare a book for writing. There is such a delirium of effort in the production of a book; it’s like childbirth. And, like childbirth, one forgets the pains immediately so that when you come to write another one you dare to take it up again. Some precious anesthesia sees you through."
— John Steinbeck (via writingquotes)
