Thought it time for a palette cleanser.  Ever wonder what great writer’s think of the art writing?

Well, here are some to consider.

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” ~Ernest Hemingway

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
~Maya Angelou

“The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say.”  ~Anaïs Nin

“I’m not a very good writer, but I’m an excellent rewriter.”  ~James Michener

“Easy reading is damn hard writing.” ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood.  I’d type a little faster.”  ~Isaac Asimov

“Every writer I know has trouble writing.” ~Joseph Heller

“It is impossible to discourage the real writers – they don’t give a damn what you say, they’re going to write.”  ~Sinclair Lewis
