Writers' Quotes

"I assumed the burden of the profession, which is to write even when you don't want to, don't much like what you are writing, and aren't writing particularly well."

~Agatha Christie


  1. I really need to take this to heart--no more "I just don't feel writerly today" excuses (except when it's 100 degrees and my brain melts. That's an acceptable excuse).

  2. Ha.
    Same goes for big shocker there...:)

    "I used to be an incredible liar. I'm now a simple novelist. Not much has changed."
    I'm not sure why I find that quote to be funny. I simply do.

  4. I'm speaking at a minister's retreat this month on "writing" (I write a blog, journals and have one book out). I'm finding the quotes you have here very interesting and helpful. May use one or two of them. Thanks.


    PS: You have a good blog.
