Thoughts On Writing quotes by Lailah GiftyAkita

Thoughts On Writing quotes by Chloe Rebekah

Thoughts On Writing quotes by Judith Barrington
#3. Susan Griffin describes it as a time when "there is no intrinsic authority to my words." "I ... clean off my desk. I make telephone calls. I know I am avoiding the typewriter. I know that in my mind, where there might be words, there is simply a blankness. I may try to write and then my words bore me." But when the time is right, the waiting will have been worth it. "Because each time I write, each time the authentic words break through, I am changed. The older order that I was collapses and dies. I lose control. I do not know exactly what words will appear on the page. I follow language. I follow the sound of the words, and I am surprised and transformed by what I record." Excerpt from "Thoughts on Writing: A Diary," in The Writer on her Work. #Quote by Judith Barrington
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Neil Gaiman
#4. I'd love to write some porn, but I don't know if I have the right engines. When I was a young man and I was tempted to write porn, imaginary parents would appear over my shoulder and read what I was writing; just about the point that I managed to banish the imaginary parents, real children would lean over my shoulder and read what I was writing. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Thoughts On Writing quotes by J.E.B. Spredemann
#5. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the imagination is worth a thousand pictures. #Quote by J.E.B. Spredemann
Thoughts On Writing quotes by K.M. Grant
#6. Stories have their own kind of truth," I pointed out. "And there's not much story if you don't make things up. I mean, you can't be a writer and just write about real life."
"Why not?" Luke snapped a twig.
I was amazed he even had to ask. "Because real life's only bearable if you don't have to live in it all the time. #Quote by K.M. Grant
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Markus Zusak
#7. I collect my thoughts as if they will stain me, murder me, and then resurrect me.
Markus Zusak, When Dogs Cry #Quote by Markus Zusak
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Melanie Kilsby
#8. Aww, the sound of waves crashing along the ocean side and spraying back up to touch the wind only for a moment, then to fall back down becoming the ocean once more... #Quote by Melanie Kilsby
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Jennifer Lassalle Edwards
#9. I never said that I was going to write a literary masterpiece. I just wanted to write something to make people feel something, hopefully in the nether regions. #Quote by Jennifer Lassalle Edwards
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Erica Jong
#10. When I'm sitting at the desk not being able to write line one, it's silence and despair! It's not so easy to put the pen to the legal pad or type the first sentence on the computer screen. #Quote by Erica Jong
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Janet Frame
#11. The idea was to have a basin inverted on his head and his hair cut to the shape of it. Skill and money were not needed. Then the idea grew that it was more convenient to leave the basin on his head. Stray thoughts were trimmed along with stray hair; brain-vines, tentacles of thought, were not encouraged to wander. Then, in the interests of human economy, the head of adaptable man became a basin of uniform shape - a basin, a crash helmet. Safe at last; no more thought-cuts. #Quote by Janet Frame
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Andrzej Wajda
#12. The difficulty of writing a good theatre play set in new reality was even greater given that the level of similitude to life that is allowed in a film would not work on the stage. #Quote by Andrzej Wajda
Thoughts On Writing quotes by William Beebe
#13. To write honestly and with conviction anything about the migration of birds, one should oneself have migrated. Somehow or other we should dehumanize ourselves, feel the feel of feathers on our body and wind in our wings, and finally know what it is to leave abundance and safety and daylight and yield to a compelling instinct, age-old, seeming at the time quite devoid of reason and object. #Quote by William Beebe
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Jo Marchant
#14. In the last decade or so, however, a new generation of brain imaging studies and clinical trials has put meditation firmly on the scientific map. They're showing that although watching our thoughts might seem ephemeral, it can have hard physical effects on our brains and bodies. #Quote by Jo Marchant
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Troy Walker
#15. Both law and comedy are heavily focused on thought and viewing all angles. To write a good joke, you have to look at a premise every way possible. And with a good legal argument, you have to see all sides to get the best line of argument for your client. Law school made me a better comic, and comedy has made me a better public speaker. #Quote by Troy Walker
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Wu Cheng'en
#16. The earth is black in front of the cliff, and no orchids grow.
Creepers crawl in the brown mud by the path.
Where did the birds of yesterday fly?
To what other mountain did the animals go?
Leopards and pythons dislike this ruined spot;
Cranes and snakes avoid the desolation.
My criminal thoughts of those days past
Brought on the disaster of today. #Quote by Wu Cheng'en
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Taylor Rhodes
#17. reining yourself in because why ruin a good thing? why make it weird? and then you say goodbye, with a hug, with a snarky remark, and head home. you climb into bed and imagine them with you. you think about how their hair falls in their face, about how they breathe when they sleep. you think about them waking up and nudging you into consciousness with soft kisses down your torso. you sit in bed and think of all the ways you could make their soul dance. how you know their quirks and it all feels so right, but why? why is this happening? why can't you just be content with what you have now? except even now you have to control the urge to kiss them, even though it is in your nature, even just on the cheek, because what if it breaks the relationship apart at the seams? you may not even mean it sexually or romantically, but what if? and there's always the chance they have felt this way too. but it's only a chance. and why risk it? so you lay there in bed and twist the sheets around your legs and text them back about another person they have feelings toward and coax them into something healthy. you put their happiness before your own. you watch as they stumble and help them rise mightily. you gush over them and try to snuff out the selfishness that builds whenever you see them with someone else. it wouldn't be fair to them to impose your own wants on them and take away a good friendship. it isn't always about you. and yet here you are, writing this. writing this and thinking of som #Quote by Taylor Rhodes
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#18. I'd spent so much of my finite time on earth thinking small thoughts, feeling small feelings, walking under doors into unoccupied rooms. How many hours did I spend online, re-watching inane videos, scrutinising listings for houses I would never buy, clicking over to check for hasty e-mails from people I didn't care about? How much of myself, how many words, feelings, and actions, had I forcefully contained? I'd angled myself away from myself, by a fraction of a degree, but after so many years, finding my way back to myself required a plane. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Ismaaciil C. Ubax
#19. They say that difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations. If I had known that you'd be my destination, I wouldn't have been afraid of the dark lonely nights. I wouldn't have cursed the bumpy ride through the cruel Demonland of my thoughts. I would've laughed through the pain if I had known that you were waiting for me on the other side of the cactus field #Quote by Ismaaciil C. Ubax
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Douglas William Jerrold
#20. A man is in no danger so long as he talks his love; but to write it is to impale himself on his own pothooks. #Quote by Douglas William Jerrold
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Scott Adams
#21. By the early-afternoon hours, if your brain is normal, it's running strictly on inertia and reflex. All you can do during those hours are the things that are exactly like other things you've done in similar situations. Creativity is out of the question. You might argue that you don't notice any difference in your thinking during the afternoon. That's because you're too dazed to notice anything during those hours. I'm sure it's true for me; I believe you could set my eyebrows on fire during the afternoon and I wouldn't notice until sometime the next morning. #Quote by Scott Adams
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Heather O'Neill
#22. On of the reasons that I wanted to study literature was because it exposed everything. Writers looked for secrets that had never been mined. Every writer has to invent their own magical language, in order to describe the indescribable. They might seem to be writing in French, English, or Spanish, but really they were writing in the language of butterflies, crows, and hanged men. #Quote by Heather O'Neill
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Susan Waterfield
#23. Really good writing has purpose and that purpose should be to shape other minds to desire truth and a more noble purpose in life and to become more thoughtful and knowledgable about important things like being kind and loving towards all living beings on our planet and not just humans but all animals. #Quote by Susan Waterfield
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Mary Sage Nguyen
#24. I never understood, what a starving artist was until I became one. #Quote by Mary Sage Nguyen
Thoughts On Writing quotes by John Patrick Hickey
#25. Writing out your goals is the first action in a chain of many on the road to achievement. #Quote by John Patrick Hickey
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Paul Theroux
#26. I never stay with people and I never look people up when I travel. I depend more on just chance meetings. The advantage is that people don't know who I am. I meet people casually and they're not doing me a big favor because I'm going to write something. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Bobby Keys
#27. John Lennon, who was a good friend of mine, he had one of the best senses of humor of any human being. And Keith Richards, fantastic sense of humor. They were smart, sharp. They had their own thoughts on matters. #Quote by Bobby Keys
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Anders Holm
#28. I'm not patient at all. I avoid writer's block by writing. I power through with a bad version, so I can move on, and usually once I've gotten to the next scene, I'll discover what was missing from the bad version scene. Then I can easily rewrite it to get back on the right path. #Quote by Anders Holm
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Stone Cold Steve Austin
#29. If you put a s infront of hitman, you have my exact thoughts on Bret Hart #Quote by Stone Cold Steve Austin
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Everett Piper
#30. The First Amendment protects our freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right to practice religion, to peacefully assemble, and the right to petition the government. This is true tolerance as defined by our founding documents. This is the right of all American citizens. Does the right of free speech end on college campuses of higher learning? Does it end when you step into a designated "safe space" at your local university? Does it end if your choice of words is construed to be a "trigger warning" when you walk into a classroom?

The answer obviously should be no. Unfortunately, the answer today on most college campuses is yes. And take this warning seriously: it won't end there.

The commentator Andrew Sullivan has noted the student anti-free-speech movement "manifests itself . . . almost as a religion". He continues:

"It posits a classic orthodoxy through which all of human experience is explained--and through which all speech must be filtered. Its version of original sin is the power of some identity groups over others. To overcome this sin, you need first to confess, i.e., "check your privilege", and subsequently live your life and order your thoughts in a way that keeps this sin at bay. This sin goes so deep into your psyche, especially if you are white or male or straight, that a profound conversion is required.

It operates as a religion in one other critical dimension: If you happen to see the world in a different way, if #Quote by Everett Piper
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Washington Irving
#31. In the present day, when popular literature is running into the low levels of life, and luxuriating on the vices and follies of mankind; and when the universal pursuit of gain is trampling down the early growth of poetic feeling, and wearing out the verdure of the soul, I question whether it would not be of service for the reader occasionally to turn to these records of prouder times and loftier modes of thinking; and to steep himself to the very lips in old Spanish romance. #Quote by Washington Irving
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Nick Cave
#32. Writing is a necessary thing for me, just to keep myself level. It has beneficial effects on my life. #Quote by Nick Cave
Thoughts On Writing quotes by R. Lewis
#33. The million man march for change would have never happened if a million men did not see that the way they were being treated was unjust" thus if we all do not start to believe that there is a major lie going on that can be resolved by realizing the truth and applying a way to change the lies we have become accustomed to, we cannot move forward. So if your tired and think life sucks do something for yourself and all Americans smarten up"'to accept the scraps of life is not sufficient for change" post something that is fact everyday see how much you can contribute to changing thoughts towards accepting truth instead of ignoring #Quote by R. Lewis
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Andrea Randall
#34. He fills my thoughts, my dreams, and my nightmares. The memory of him, and his touch, pound on the door to my soul with such force that cracks are forming in the wood. I do my best to act like no one is home by keeping the door locked and the lights off. #Quote by Andrea Randall
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Andrew Vachss
#35. It isn't much use writing slogans on a wall if you plan to total the building. #Quote by Andrew Vachss
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Nick Hornby
#36. Did you know that Jacques Benveniste, one of the world's leading homeopathic "scientists," now claims that you can *email* homeopathic remedies? Yeah, see, what you do is you can take the "memory" of the diluted substance out of the water electromagnetically, put it on your computer, email it, and play it back on a sound card into new water. I mean, that could work, right?
(Nick's thoughts after reading Francis Wheen's book "How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World") #Quote by Nick Hornby
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Elizabeth Berg
#37. The best thing that can happen to me when I'm writing fiction is to lose sight of the fact that I'm writing at all. It's as though I enter into a kind of trance. I know I'm writing, but I don't THINK about it. I just let my fingers type
it's as though the feeling comes out directly through them, bypassing the brain altogether. When that happens, I feel completely transported. There is nothing else like this feeling, very little else is more important to me. That intimacy I feel between myself and my work is what makes me feel at home on the earth. I am basically a shy person, basically a loner and an outsider; and I have been all my life. But when I achieve the kind of connection I can through writing, I feel I'm sitting in the lap of God. #Quote by Elizabeth Berg
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Alan Palomo
#38. I think it's more about trying to just focus exclusively on writing music and making that a viable, sustainable lifestyle. It's difficult because it forces you to really get creative. #Quote by Alan Palomo
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Oliver Sacks
#39. I find my thoughts, increasingly, not on the supernatural or spiritual but on what is meant by living a good and worthwhile life - achieving a sense of peace within oneself. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Nico J. Genes
#40. Writing is one of the best therapies that exist. Either on paper, computer, phone or tablet, in any form it is helpful. Whenever you feel like writing, just do it. Let the words flow out of your mind and heart. It doesn't have to make sense to anyone but you. Some people may find easier to express themselves in writing than verbally. While you will have time to choose the best words, you will also escape the fear of immediate reaction. Take your time and play with the words until you feel you got them right. One can write about anything. About a dream, a fantasy, a love story, happenings during the day, an apology or a greeting, everything is permitted in the world of writing. There it is no good or bad. #Quote by Nico J. Genes
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Michael Vick
#41. What I did, you know, being away from my family, letting so many people down. I let myself down, not being out on the football field, being in a prison bed, in a prison bunk, writing letters home, you know. That wasn't my life. #Quote by Michael Vick
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Naomi Wallace
#42. I'm interested in the way that the language of labor has been suppressed in our culture, the way it has disappeared from our vocabulary and is never heard on stage ... I'm better at writing than I am at organizing [political action]. SLAUGHTER CITY is my small contribution. If it gives people a voice it is worth something. So often we forget what we are no longer hearing. #Quote by Naomi Wallace
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Gary Chapman
#43. Quality conversation is quite different from the love language words of affirmation. Affirming words focus on what we are saying, whereas quality conversation focuses fully as much on what we are hearing. If I am sharing my love for you by means of quality time and we are going to spend that time in conversation, it will be with a genuine desire to understand your thoughts, feelings and desires. #Quote by Gary Chapman
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Caterina Fake
#44. Make time less precious. We are way too efficient, making use of every hour, every minute. When you were a kid, didn't you just spend hours poking sticks in the mud, climbing trees and sitting in them, looking at shells and seaweed that washed up on the shoreline? Time was not precious then, we weren't trying to stuff an accomplishment into every minute every day, we had time for thoughts and feelings. That was good! #Quote by Caterina Fake
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#45. I haven't any formal schedule, but I love to write in the morning, before breakfast. Sometimes the writing goes so smoothly that I don't take a break for many hours - and consequently have breakfast at two or three in the afternoon on good days. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#46. There is dust enough on some of your Bibles to write 'damnation' with your fingers. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Thoughts On Writing quotes by Anonymous
#47. Imagine a group of people all staring at writing on a wall, everyone congratulating one another on reading the words correctly. But behind that group is a mirror whose image shows the writing's true message. No one looks at the mirror. No one thinks it's necessary. #Quote by Anonymous
Thoughts On Writing quotes by William Luce
#48. I look at words as if they were entities, sacred beings. There are words to which I tip my hat when I see them sitting on a page. #Quote by William Luce
