Five Great Quotations for Aspiring Writers

“Keep writing. Keep doing it and doing it. Even in the moments when it’s so hurtful to think about writing.” – Heather Armstrong

“Inspiration is wonderful when it happens, but the writer must develop an approach for the rest of the time… The wait is simply too long.” – Leonard Bernstein

“I take the view, and always have, that if you cannot say what you are going to say in twenty minutes you ought to go away and write a book about it.” – Lord Brabazon

“You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you’re working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success – but only if you persist.” – Isaac Asimov

“No letter from a lover is ever more welcome, brings more joy, than a publisher’s expression of interest does to a new author!” – Judith Brocklehurst
