Five Great Quotations about Writing Process

“The writer’s silent mind is a period of intermission before orchestrating a symphony of words.” – Khaled Talib

“There’s a magic to letting a story and its people unfold with witchcraft and late nights and walks in the woods. You don’t lead a story. You follow it.” – Kate Inglis

“Writing is rewriting. The rough draft is just that. You can’t polish what you haven’t written.” – Vincent H. O’Neil

“Getting completely lost, coming unstrung and unbound, arriving at unknown and unexpected places, is, for me, a critical part of writing.” – Louise DeSalvo
