Mond– errr, Tuesday Quote Day!


A professional writer is someone who writes just as well when they're not inspired as when they are. 
{Philip Pullman}
Writer’s block is only a failure of the ego. 
{Norman Mailer}
Imagination is a gift. Don't waste it!
{Jeanne Warnes}
Write without pay until somebody offers to pay. 
{Mark Twain}
Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you earn no money.
{Jules Renard}
I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear. 
{Joan Didion}
Don’t be in too much of a rush to be published. There is enormous value in listening and reading and writing–and then putting your words away for weeks or months–and then returning to your work to polish it some more. 
{Sharon Creech}
Books are not written about proper children. They would be so dull nobody would read them.
{L.M. Montgomery}
Creativity is intelligence having fun. 
{Albert Einstein}
I have come to understand there are no coincidences in writing; the information you need comes to you when you are ready to receive it.
{Nancy Werlin}
Happy Tuesday and happy writing, Zigzaggers!!!
