Some things from some people what wrote. And some other things.
L’appetit vient en manger: “Appetite comes with eating” – a French proverb I think, but true of writing….
If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it. ~Toni Morrison
Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn’t wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say. ~Sharon O’Brien
Writing is a struggle against silence. ~Carlos Fuentes
I write because I’m afraid to say some things out loud. ~Gordon Atkinson
I hate writing, I love having written. ~Dorothy Parker, may not be exact wording
Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand. ~George Orwell, “Why I Write,” 1947
