✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Writing a Story is Like . . .

“Writing a story is like going on a date—you will spoil it if you aren’t living in the moment.”

~  Pawan Mishra


✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Feeling What You Write

““I like writing organically. So I don’t force anything out. I allow myself to be. I allow myself to feel. I allow the words to come to me like the wind. And I try to catch whatever message that is whispered in the breeze.”
Valentine Okolo


✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Do You Hear the Voices of Your Characters?

“I have voices in my head
I’m a slave to imaginary people
I feel what they feel
I experience what they experience
I live in their world
And I’m devoted to translating their stories
I’m not crazy, I’m a writer”
Charisse Spiers


✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Don’t Worry About What People Think

““I used to be afraid about what people might say or think after reading what I had written. I am not afraid anymore, because when I write, I am not trying to prove anything to anyone, I am just expressing myself and my opinions. It’s ok if my opinions are different from those of the reader, each of us can have his own opinions. So writing is like talking, if you are afraid of writing, you may end up being afraid of talking”

~ Bangambiki Habyarimana


✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Are You Having Fun with Your Imaginary Friends

““A writer’s life is never boring when you have imaginary friends to play with!” ~  Christie Silvers


✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Don’t Compare Yourself with Other Writers

“There are lots of guys out there who write a better prose line than I do and who have a better understanding of what people are really like and what humanity is supposed to mean – hell, I know that.”  ~ Stephen King


✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Five Common Traits of Good Writers

“Five common traits of good writers: (1) They have something to say. (2) They read widely and have done so since childhood. (3) They possess what Isaac Asimov calls a “capacity for clear thought,” able to go from point to point in an orderly sequence, an A to Z approach. (4) They’re geniuses at putting their emotions into words. (5) They possess an insatiable curiosity, constantly asking Why and How.” ~  James J. Kilpatrick


✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Write for the Joy of Writing

“I believe that half the trouble in the world comes from people asking ‘What have I achieved?’ rather than ‘What have I enjoyed?’ I’ve been writing about a subject I love as long as I can remember–horses and the people associated with them, anyplace, anywhere, anytime. I couldn’t be happier knowing that young people are reading my books. But even more important to me is that I’ve enjoyed so much the writing of them.”
~ Walter Farley, The Black Stallion

✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Dance as You Write

“Dance above the surface of the world. Let your thoughts lift you into creativity that is not hampered by opinion.”  ~ Red Haircrow


✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Will Your Muse Show Up Today?

“Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch.”  ~  Lili St. Crow
