Precious Words from Writers

Writing on the Pages of Life

“You’re a writer. And that’s something better than being a millionaire. Because it’s something holy.”
-Harlan Ellison

“There are significant moments in everyone’s day that can make good literature. That’s what you write about.”
-Raymond Carver

“You just have to sit down and write. I never saw myself as a literary figure. The phrase, “writer’s block” would sound a little pretentious in my mouth.”
-Red Smith

“If you write a hundred short stories and they’re all bad, that doesn’t mean you’ve failed. You fail only if you stop writing.”
Ray Bradbury

“When I sit down on my writing desk, time seems to vanish. I think it’s a wonderful way to spend one’s life.”
-Erica Jong

“Watch children at play. They are terribly serious. The same is true with writing: you get caught up in the rhythm. That’s when it really gets to be complete play.”
-Madeleine L’engle
