A Holiday Treat -- Cherished Quotes

December 19, 2017

Following are some of my favorite quotes.  Most of them pertain to writing.  Perhaps you can read these and relax during this busy time of year.

You must send your work out.  Keep sending it out. Never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer.  You send that work out again and again while you work on another one.  If you have talent you will receive some measure of success, but only if you persist." Isaac  Asminoon


"Writing is standing naked, and a lot of people are afraid to do that" Robin Norwood


"What every good writer needs is a shockproof shit detecter." Ernest Hemingway
