Twain and Michener on Writing – Quotes to Inspire Writers

quotestinyFound these two in the same place, and couldn’t resist:

Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.

~ Mark Twain

I’m not a very good writer, but I’m an excellent rewriter.

~ James Michener

Both found at Resources for Writers at  Suite101

Do you have a favorite quote roughly related to writing? Post it in comments and chances are I’ll up level to a post some Saturday – giving you credit of course.
