Writing Quote Friday

Today’s writing quote comes from E. L. Doctorow…

Planning to write is not writing. Outlining, researching, talking to people about what you’re doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing.

Writing Quote Friday (Monday Edition)

I didn’t do a writing quote last Friday because of the super fun caption contest (click here to see the winners). 

Today’s writing quotes are from Jackie Collins…

If you want to achieve your dreams, you must follow them, and the best way to follow them is not to think about wanting to be very rich, but to think about doing something that you really want to do.
 
*****
I don’t believe in writing anything that I don’t know about or haven’t researched about personally. I like to transport the reader to places, and in order to do that I have to do the research.
*****
Do not copy my style! The first rule of writing is write about what you know, not what you think you know. So, think about what you’ve done in your life and write about that.

Today’s writing quote comes from Stephen King

“Making people believe the unbelievable is no trick; it’s work. … Belief and reader absorption come in the details: An overturned tricycle in the gutter of an abandoned neighborhood can stand for everything.”
