On Writing - 8 Quotes & an LOLcat

'All writers are vain, selfish and lazy...'   ~George Orwell
All writers are vain, selfish and lazy...' ~George Orwell 



Life can't ever really defeat a writer who is in love with writing, for life itself is a writer's lover until death - fascinating, cruel, lavish, warm, cold, treacherous, constant.  ~Edna Ferber, A Kind of Magic, 1963

You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.  ~Saul Bellow

Fiction, imaginative work that is, is not dropped like a pebble upon the ground, as science may be; fiction is like a spider's web, attached ever so lightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners.   ~Virginia Woolf

Writers are not just people who sit down and write.  They hazard themselves.  Every time you compose a book your composition of yourself is at stake.  ~E.L. Doctorow

The writer who possesses the creative gift owns something of which he is not always master - something that at times strangely wills and works for itself.    ~Charlotte Bronte

I think it's bad to talk about one's present work, for it spoils something at the root of the creative act.  It discharges the tension.  ~Norman Mailer

And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.  The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.  ~Sylvia Plath
