(Visto en Gúgl Plás), están buenísimas todas - quizá falta la ya famosa de Borges acerca de estar orgulloso de los libros que leyó:
1. “Substitute ‘damn’ every
time you’re inclined to write ‘very’; your editor will delete it and the
writing will be just as it should be.” ~ Mark Twain
2. “If writing seems hard, it’s because it is hard. It’s one of the hardest things people do.” ~ William Zinsser
3. “Writing well means never having to say, ‘I guess you had to be there.’ ” ~ Jef Mallett
“Writing gives you the illusion of control, and then you realize it’s
just an illusion, that people are going to bring their own stuff into
it.” ~ David Sedaris
5. “There’s nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein.” ~ Red Smith
6. “Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.” ~ E.L. Doctorow
7. “I’m not a very good writer, but I’m an excellent rewriter.” ~ James Michener
8. “Easy reading is damn hard writing.” ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
9. “If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood. I’d type a little faster.” ~ Isaac Asimov
10. “The road to hell is paved with adverbs.” ~ Stephen King
“Ink and paper are sometimes passionate lovers, oftentimes brother and
sister, and occasionally mortal enemies.” ~ Terri Guillemets
12. “Write drunk, edit sober.” ~ Ernest Hemingway
