How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#1. Sensations are the great things, after all. Should you ever be drowned or hung, be sure and make a note of your sensations; they will be worth to you ten guineas a sheet. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#2. Don't lament so much about how your career is going to turn out. You don't have a career. You have a life. Do the work. Keep the faith. Be true blue. You are a writer because you write. Keep writing and quit your bitching. Your book has a birthday. You don't know what it is yet. #Quote by Cheryl Strayed
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#3. Literary gentlemen, editors, and critics think that they know how to write, because they have studied grammar and rhetoric; but they are egregiously mistaken. The art of composition is as simple as the discharge of a bullet from a rifle, and its masterpieces imply an infinitely greater force behind them. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Carla H. Krueger
#4. There are times when I can't believe how much ridiculous stuff happens to me and how brilliant it is to be in a position to write about it. #Quote by Carla H. Krueger
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Natalie Goldberg
#5. In the past few years I've assigned books to be read before a student attends one of my weeklong seminars. I have been astonished by how few people
people who supposedly want to write
read books, and if they read them, how little they examine them. #Quote by Natalie Goldberg
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Kamand Kojouri
#6. How strange is it
that our beloved
finds its way to us
in everything?
The orange moon,
a freckle,
the smell of coffee -
are all bridges
to the one we desire.
How does our beloved find us
in this way?
Or
are we the ones instead
who find our beloved in everything?
Our intense want of them
necessitates the nearness of them.
And so we seek beauty
only to be flooded with the beauty
of our beloved.
And we write ellipses on the page
only to be thrice reminded
of the freckle
below their lips... #Quote by Kamand Kojouri
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Anne Rice
#7. First-person narrators is the way I know how to write a book with the greatest power and chance of artistic success. #Quote by Anne Rice
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Natalie Goldberg
#8. I write because I am alone and move through the world alone. No one will know what has passed through me ... I write because there are stories that people have forgotten to tell, because I am a woman trying to stand up in my life ... I write out of hurt and how to make hurt okay; how to make myself strong and come home, and it may be the only real home I'll ever have. #Quote by Natalie Goldberg
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#9. How about something to drink. Coffee, tea, soda, water, scotch. Never too early for scotch. Violet, some scotch. Ice. I said ice. No ice, then. Me too. Always neat for me. Look at my view. No, not at the gardener. José! José! Got to pound on the glass to get his attention. He's half deaf. José! Move! You're blocking the view. Good. See the view. I'm talking about the Hollywood sign right there. Never get tired of it. Like the Word of God just dropped down, plunked on the hills, and the Word was Hollywood. Didn't God say let the be light first. What's a movie but light. Can't have a movie without light. And then words. Seeing that sign reminds me to write every morning. What. All right, so it doesn't say Hollywood. You got me. Good eye. Thing's falling to pieces. One O's half fallen and the other O's fallen altogether. The word's gone to shit. So what. You still get the meaning. Thanks, Violet. Cheers. How do they say it in your country. I said how do they say it. Yo, yo, yo, is it. I like that. Easy to remember. Yo, yo, yo, then. #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Aldous Huxley
#10. Oh, as far as they go." Helmholtz shrugged his shoulders. "But they go such a little way. They aren't important enough, somehow. I feel I could do something much more important. Yes, and more intense, more violent. But what? What is there more important to say? And how can one be violent about the sort of things one's expected to write about? Words can be like X-rays, if you use them properly ― they'll go through anything. You read and you're pierced. That's one of the things I try to teach my students ― how to write piercingly. But what on earth's the good of being pierced by an article about a Community Sing, or the latest improvement in scent organs? Besides, can you make words really piercing ― you know, like the very hardest X-rays ― when you're writing about that sort of thing? Can you say something about nothing? That's what it finally boils down to. I try and I try. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Arno Michaelis
#11. I'll never truly understand what it's like to be anyone but a white man in the United States. For all of my self-imposed distance from the status quo, I'll never be able to get my head around being the product of generations of hardship. The most brutal chattel slavery in human history. I'll never comprehend being penned up in an impoverished reservation on land that was once sovereign domain. I'll never know how it feels to be denied because of the color of your skin or because of where you came from. To have to watch your children suffer the same fate. But I still try to understand - by studying the history that the victors didn't write, and interacting with my fellow human beings. Finding out what their favorite color is. Asking what they daydreamed about as a child. Sharing laughs. Discovering the person. I #Quote by Arno Michaelis
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Tanith Lee
#12. I must suppose that reading wonderful writers may, inadvertently, teach an avid reader a great deal
not only about life and other matters, but about how to write. Therefore doubtless I have benefited from frequent immersions in the glowing genius of others. It would be nice to think so. (I do actually think so). But to improve my skills will never be the prompting force of my reading
that's just literary lust. #Quote by Tanith Lee
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Edward Abbey
#13. How long does it take to write a good book? All of the years that you've lived. #Quote by Edward Abbey
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by David Lagercrantz
#14. But afterwards in the pub, they had dreamed about the big stories and talked for hours of how they would never be satisfied with the conventional or the shallow but instead would always dig deep. They were young and ambitious and wanted it all, all at once. There were times when Levin missed that, not the salary, or the working hours, or even the easy life in the bars and the women, but the dreams - he missed the power in them. He sometimes longed for that throbbing urge to change society and journalism and to write so that the world would come to a standstill and the mighty powers bow down. Even a hotshot like himself wondered: Where did the dreams go? #Quote by David Lagercrantz
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by James Thurber
#15. Editing should be, especially in the case of old writers, a counselling rather than a collaborating task. The tendency of the writer-editor to collaborate is natural, but he should say to himself, 'How can I help this writer to say it better in his own style?' and avoid 'How can I show him how I would write it, if it were my piece?' #Quote by James Thurber
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Joe Goddard
#16. People try to be more edgy, or write about that first explosive meeting between two people in a club, but not so much the long-term issues; I don't know how to write a song about teenage heartbreak anymore. #Quote by Joe Goddard
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Catherine Marshall
#17. Dean's eyes were studying me. "You have a way with words. What kind of writing do you want to do?"
"Articles for Dad's paper, to start."
"What do you want to write about?"
I paused, suddenly uncertain about how much to share. Dean's eyes were reassuring.
"When I know more, I'd like to write about deeper things. #Quote by Catherine Marshall
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Jarvis Cocker
#18. You write a song about how you think at the time, and then gradually you drift away from that, and when it's far enough in the past, that's when you think, 'Now I have to write something new.' #Quote by Jarvis Cocker
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Alex Garland
#19. It slightly depends on your perspective, sort of how you look at these things, but when I sit down to write a script, I'm not planning to write a script; I'm planning to make a film, and so I only see the script as being just a step there. #Quote by Alex Garland
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Joan Didion
#20. Why did I write it down? In order to remember, of course, but exactly what was it I wanted to remember? How much of it actually happened? Any of it? Why do I keep a notebook at all?
It is easy to deceive oneself on all those scores. The impulse to write things down is a peculiarly compulsive one, inexplicable to those who do not share it, useful if accidentally, only secondarily, in the way that compulsion tries to justify itself. I suppose that it begins or does not begin in the cradle.
Although I have felt compelled to write things down since I was five years old, I doubt my daughter ever will, for she is a singularly blessed and accepting child, delighted with life exactly as life presents itself to her, unafraid to wake up.
Keepers of private notebooks are a different breed altogether, lonely and resistant rearranger of things, anxious malcontents, children afflicted apparently at birth with some presentment of loss. #Quote by Joan Didion
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Harold H. Greene
#21. There would be nights when I would wake up and couldn't get back to sleep. So I would go downstairs and write. The staff had a pool going on how many pages of typing I would bring in here in the morning. #Quote by Harold H. Greene
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Quinn Loftis
#22. Ok, let me just write that down for you since you seem to think I'm you personal assistant," Sally responded, her tone clipped.
"You ever noticed how assistant starts with ass? Do you think that's a coincidence?" Jen shrugged her shoulders as she raised her eyebrows at Sally. #Quote by Quinn Loftis
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#23. I'm afraid of coaching, of writer's classes, of writer's magazines, of books on how to write. They give me centipede trouble - you know the yarn about the centipede who was asked how he managed all his feet? He tried to answer, stopped to think about it, and was never able to walk another step. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Jacob Neusner
#24. A dear and long-time friend, ... asked me, "Jack, how long does it usually take you to write a book?" I replied, "Of course it depends on the project and its requirements, each book has its own rules. But for a statement to the world at large, once I've thought a book through and written it in my mind, it takes me around a week or so, depending on this and that, ordinarily at the rate of a chapter a day, but I've had some two-chapters day and some chapters have taken two days. And then of course there is revision, but around a week is about right." He seemed surprised, and I was surprised by his surprise, so I thought, maybe I'm wrong. I went home and wrote this book, at the perfectly normal pace of a chapter a day, as usual ... #Quote by Jacob Neusner
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Mehek Bassi
#25. The term - 'Fairy-Tales' is so ironical in itself, when I sometimes sit to write love stories with a happy ending, it usually drags me into a dilemma whether, I should even begin with a love story at first place or not? Because honestly, I haven't seen many of them reaching climax, most of them just die out in the mid. Then comes the concept of fairy tales or what we say 'fiction', where nothing is impossible!
But over time, if I've realized something, it is that there's no such term called fiction when it comes to reality! Its harsh, in-your-face-sarcastic, ironical and highly irrational. You can't expect what's coming up next, and how it's going to blow you. In the real life, the entire meaning of fiction ceases to exist. Conclusively, we writers, deal with harsh reality and write lively fictions, this job in itself is so ironical but, that's life ... #Quote by Mehek Bassi
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#26. How to evolve? Read my book Prometheus Rising, and do all the exercises in that. There are a lot of exercises. It will keep you busy for at least a year. And if at the end of that year you haven't evolved, write me a letter of complaint, and I'll try to write a better book. #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by John Stuart Mill
#27. People think genius a fine thing if it enables a man to write an exciting poem, or paint a picture, But in its true sense, that of originality in thought and action, though no one says that it is not a thing to be admired, nearly all, at heart, think that they can do very well without it. Unhappily this is too natural to be wondered at. Originality is the one thing which unoriginal minds cannot feel the use of. They cannot see what it is to do for them: how should they? If they could see what it would do for them, it would not be originality. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Bob Proctor
#28. What do you really want? Sit down and write it out on a piece of paper, write it in the present tense. You might begin by writing, 'I am so happy and grateful now that ... ' and then explain how you want your life to be in every area. #Quote by Bob Proctor
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Cassandra Clare
#29. No matter how many books you've written, whenever you sit down to write a new book, you always feel the same challenge - how do you shape this story into a book that people are going to love. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Richelle Mead
#30. I was crushing on my mentor. Crushing on my older mentor. I had to be out of my mind. He was seven years older than me. Old enough to be my ... well, okay, nothing. But still older than me. Seven years was a lot. He's been learning to write when I was born. When I'd been learning to write and throw books at my teachers, he's probably been kissing girls. Probably lots of girls, considering how he looked. #Quote by Richelle Mead
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Mildred D. Taylor
#31. I do not know how old I was when the daydreams became more than that, and I decided to write them down, but by the time I entered high school, I was confident that I would one day be a writer. #Quote by Mildred D. Taylor
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by E.L. Bates
#32. Anything in your training tell you how to write to a young lady you've barely met, who witnessed a murder with you, when you want to convince her to not tell the police you both witnessed said murder?" Len asked, as much to distract Becket from the paper as for any hope his valet might be helpful.

"I don't believe that particular scenario is covered in any etiquette book I've ever seen, sir," Becket said. #Quote by E.L. Bates
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Saundra Mitchell
#33. When I was invited to write a story for A Tyranny of Petticoats, I had two ideas. One was a murder mystery
I've written that kind of thing before. The other was a cross-dressing, bank-robbing teen bandit on the run. I've never written that kind of thing before. How to choose? How to choose? As Mae West once said, I went with the evil I'd never tried before. #Quote by Saundra Mitchell
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
#34. It is necessary a writing critic should understand how to write. And though every writer is not bound to show himself in the capacity of critic, every writing critic is bound to show himself capable of being a writer; for if he be apparently impotent in this latter kind, he is to be denied all title or character in the other. #Quote by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Natsume Sōseki
#35. How, I wondered, could you regain a poetical frame of mind at times like this? I came to the conclusion that it could be done, if only you could take your feelings and place them in front of you, and then taking a pace back to give yourself the room to move that a bystander would have, examine them calmly and with complete honesty. The poet has an obligation to conduct to conduct a post-mortem on their own corpse and to make public their findings as to any disease they may encounter. There are many ways in which they may do this, but the best, and certainly the most convenient, is to try and compress every single incident which they come across into the seventeen syllables of a Hokku. Since this is poetry in its handiest and simplest form, it may be readily composed while you are washing your face, or in the lavatory, or on a tram. When I say that it may be readily composed, I do not mean it in any derogatory sense. On the contrary, I think it is a very praiseworthy quality, for it makes it easy for one to become a poet; and to become a poet is one way to achieve supreme enlightenment. No, the simpler it is, the greater its virtue. Let us assume that you are angry: you write about what it is that has made you lose your temper, and immediately it seems that it is someone else's anger that you are considering. Nobody can be angry and write a Hokku at the same time. Likewise, if you are crying, express your tears in seventeen syllables and you feel happy. No sooner are your thou #Quote by Natsume Sōseki
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Trey Parker
#36. Kim Jong Il: Hans Brix? Oh no! Oh, herro. Great to see you again, Hans!
Hans Blix: Mr. Il, I was supposed to be allowed to inspect your palace today, but your guards won't let me enter certain areas.
Kim Jong Il: Hans, Hans, Hans! We've been frew this a dozen times. I don't have any weapons of mass destwuction, OK Hans?
Hans Blix: Then let me look around, so I can ease the UN's collective mind. I'm sorry, but the UN must be firm with you. Let me in, or else.
Kim Jong Il: Or else what?
Hans Blix: Or else we will be very angry with you ... and we will write you a letter, telling you how angry we are. #Quote by Trey Parker
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Haruki Murakami
#37. I am 55 years old now. It takes three years to write one book. I don't know how many books I will be able to write before I die. It is like a countdown. So with each book I am praying - please let me live until I am finished. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Mickey Newbury
#38. I would sooner be robbed by a fan than a company. The fan may be broke and have but one choice. There is no excuse for the way the "songwriter" is robbed by everyone from the record company to the broadcaster, by the pure bottom line, greed. If it continues, sadly, in time, the music will suffer. It takes many many years to learn how to write a song properly. Songwriters will be forced to hit the road in order to make a decent living and, in my opinion, these two careers are related but not compatible. #Quote by Mickey Newbury
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Quinn Norton
#39. There is an aesthetic crisis in writing, which is this: how do we write emotionally of scenes involving computers? How do we make concrete, or at least reconstructable in the minds of our readers, the terrible, true passions that cross telephony lines? Right now my field must tackle describing a world where falling in love, going to war and filling out tax forms looks the same; it looks like typing. #Quote by Quinn Norton
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#40. I've always been a journal-keeper. I've always tried to write about how I'm experiencing life, and my feelings and thoughts. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Junot Diaz
#41. I grew up in a post-dictatorship dictatorship society. The axis of likability is how dictatorships survive. Becoming popular is part of what dictatorships hijack to remain in power. For me to write things from the same toxic axis that made stronger the dictatorship that completely disfigured my family and my society, it just wasn't going to happen. #Quote by Junot Diaz
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Sarah Kay
#42. people used to tell me that i had beautiful hands
told me so often, in fact, that one day i started to believe them until i asked my photographer father, "hey daddy could i be a hand model"

to which he said no way,

i dont remember the reason he gave me and i wouldve been upset,

but there were far too many stuffed animals to hold
too many homework assignment to write,
too many boys to wave at
too many years to grow,

we used to have a game, my dad and i about holding hands cus we held hands everywhere, and every time either he or i would whisper a great
big number to the other, pretending that we were keeping track of how many times we had held hands that we were sure, this one had to be 8 million 2 thousand 7 hundred and fifty three.

hands learn more than minds do,
hands learn how to hold other hands,
how to grip pencils and mold poetry,
how to tickle pianos and dribble a basketball,
and grip the handles of a bicycle
how to hold old people, and touch babies ,
i love hands like i love people,

they're the maps and compasses in which we navigate our way through life, some people read palms to tell your future,

but i read hands to tell your past,
each scar marks the story worth telling,
each calloused palm,
each cracked knuckle is a missed punch
or years in a factory,

now ive seen middle eastern hands cl #Quote by Sarah Kay
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Sierra DeMulder
#43. I am trying to teach poetry in school districts
that only know how to starve. I am trying
to show my students, who don't know

how to spell, how to write their lives
in anything but blood. I am trying to learn
how to give and foster forgiveness in a body

that wants none of it. #Quote by Sierra DeMulder
How To Write A Blackwood Article quotes by Ryan Adams
#44. There definitely isn't a structure anymore to how I get ideas. A lot of times I'll just write down a phrase, or I'll have an idea that's attached to just a few chords. Other times, it's work. #Quote by Ryan Adams
