Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up. Jane Yolen.
Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to
their level and then beat you with experience.
The concentration of the elite athlete is akin perhaps
to the concentration of the writer. Julia Leigh
A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.
To write something you have to risk making a fool of yourself.
