Writing Quote Friday

Today’s quote comes from Stephen King…

Stopping a piece of work just because it’s hard, either emotionally or imaginatively, is a bad idea. Sometimes you need to go on when you don’t feel like it, and sometimes you’re doing good work when it feels like all you’re managing is to shovel shit from a sitting position.

(Quote taken from King’s wonderful book, On Writing)

  1. Talynn,

    By chance is that an homage to Finding Nemo? (Dori the fish always says, “Just keep swimming.”)

    I love to think that even Stephen King sometimes isn’t happy with his writing :). I just read Misery a few months ago and wow can that guy create some serious tension, just by showing a few floor creaks!

    Thanks for visiting.

      Whenever I’m at a loss for a writing quote, he’s my go-to guy, and that’s my go-to book 😀

      How are things with you?
