You can’t depend on your judgment when your imagination is out of focus.
The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.
It is impossible to discourage the real writers–they don't give a damn what you say, they're going to write.
The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it.
I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little farther down our particular path than we have yet got ourselves.
‘Tell me what you read and I'll tell you who you are’ is true enough, but I'd know you better if you told me what you re-read.
When you re-read a classic you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in you than was there before.
When you catch an adjective, kill it. No, I don't mean utterly, but kill most of them–then the rest will be valuable.
Happy Monday and happy writing, Zigzaggers!!!
