Word to the wise writer: never underestimate your secondary characters! But watch them... they sneak off with stuff.
Quote by Ken Follett
I want to tell a story that makes the reader always want to see what will happen next.
Quote by Roald Dahl
Two hours of writing fiction leaves this writer completely drained. For those two hours he has been in a different place with totally different people.
Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafón in The Angel's Game (Book quote)
The only way you can truly get to know an author is through the trail of ink he leaves behind him. The person you think you see is only an empty character: truth is always hidden in fiction.
Quote by John Green
Writing is something you do alone. Its a profession for introverts who want to tell you a story but don't want to make eye contact while doing it.
Quote by Michael Ende in The Neverending Story (Book quote)
If you stop to think about it, you’ll have to admit that all the stories in the world consist essentially of twenty-six letters. The letters are always the same, only the arrangement varies. From letters words are formed, from words sentences, from sentences chapters, and from chapters stories.
Quote by Nicholas Sparks in Wie ein einziger Tag (Book quote)
Poetry, she thought, wasn't written to be analyzed, it was meant to inspire without reason, to touch without understanding.
Quote by Lewis Carroll
Always speak the truth, think before you speak, and write it down afterwards.
Quote by T. S. Eliot
The most important thing for poets to do is to write as little as possible.
Quote by Ernest Hemingway
My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.
Quote by Ernest Hemingway
I learned never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it.
Quote by Cat Stevens - The Wind (Lyric)
I listen to my words, but they fall far below
I let my music take me, where my heart wants to go
Quote by Maurice Sendak
You cannot write for children. They're much too complicated. You can only write books that are of interest to them.
Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
Quote by Hank Moody from Californication in Season 4 Episode 2 (Series quote)
To my dear beautiful daughter,
I'm writing you a letter. That's right, a good old-fashioned letter. It's a lost art, really. I have a confession to make. I didn't like you very much at first. You were just this annoying, little blob. You smelled nice. Most of the time. But you didn't seem to have much interest in me. Which I, of course, found vaguely insulting.
It was just you and your mom against the world... funny how some things never change. So I cruised along, doing my thing, acting the fool, not really understanding how being a parent changes you. And I don't remember the exact moment everything changed. I just know that it did.
One minute I was impenetrable. Nothing could touch me. The next, my heart was somehow beating outside my chest, exposed to the elements. Loving you has been the most profound, intense, painful experience of my life. In fact, it's been almost too much to bear. As your father, I made a silent vow to protect you from the world, never realizing I was the one who would end up hurting you the most.
When I flash forward, my heart breaks. Mostly because I can't imagine you speaking of me with any sort of pride. How could you? Your father is a child in a man's body. He cares for nothing and everything at the same time. Noble in thought, weak in action. Something has to change. Something has to give. It's getting dark... too dark to see.
Quote by Kingsley Amis
If you can't annoy somebody, there's little point in writing.
Quote by Hank Moody from Californication in Season 1 Episode 5 (Series quote)
People... they don't write anymore - they blog. Instead of talking, they text, no punctuation, no grammar: LOL this and LMFAO that. You know, it just seems to me it's just a bunch of stupid people pseudo-communicating with a bunch of other stupid people in a proto-language that resembles more what cavemen used to speak than the King's English.
