Random thoughts VIII: Writing

'Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.' Nathaniel Hawthorne

'Loafing is the most productive part of a writer's life.'  James Norman Hall

'Sleep on your writing; take a walk over it; scrutinize it of a morning; review it of an afternoon; digest it after a meal; let it sleep in your drawer a twelvemonth; never venture a whisper about it to your friend, if he be an author especially.'  A. Bronson Alcott

'I'm not a very good writer, but I'm an excellent rewriter.' James Michener

'It is impossible to discourage the real writers - they don't give a damn what you say, they're going to write.' Sinclair Lewis
