Wednesday's Random Funnies

Some smile worthy quotes by writers about writing. Enjoy!

"A writer is a person for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people." -Thomas Mann

"If a writer wrote merely for his time, I would have to break my pen and throw it away." -Victor Hugo

"There are three rules for writing the novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are." -W. Somerset Maugham

"I think I did pretty well, considering I started out with nothing but a bunch of blank paper." -Steve Martin

A quote which is appropriately followed by:

"Writing is 1 percent inspiration, and 99 percent elimination." -Louise Brooks

"I have made this letter longer, because I have not had the time to make it shorter." -Blaise Pascal This one makes me smile. Can't you just tell so much about the writer's personality just by this one line? Love it.

I will end with my favorite : )

"It's none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way." -Ernest Hemingway
