QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Sat., Dec. 14, 2019

By
Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

Hi Everyone!  Saturday evening here in Orlando, Florida.  We had another
beautiful day - what can I say - winter months here in Central Florida are
heavenly- high of 75º and a low of 52º.  I also will continue my choice of quotes
as Part II from yesterday quotes of the life, work, challenges, and rewards of
being a writer.  Because I have a couple of books stuck in my head and
wanting 
to get them out in manuscript and published, I need 'h-e-l-p!'  I
found some 
help in the quotes yesterday -- found some enlightenment.  If you
are currently struggling
 at writing, perhaps you may find some insight helpful. 
Have a wonderful Sunday!                                                                                ~Jane
                                                          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  

"Start writing, no matter what.  The water does not flow until the faucet is
turned on."                                                                                    ~Louis L'Amour

"Read a thousand books, and your words will flow like a river."
                                                                                                              ~Lisa See

" If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write."
                                                                                                          ~Stephen King

"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

"Read, read, read.  Read everything - trash, classics, good and bad, and see
how they do it.  Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies
the master.  Read! You'll absorb it.  Then write.  If it's good, you'll find out.
If it's not, throw it out of the window."                               ~William Faulkner 

"Platforms like Linkedin, Medium, and Word Press have placed million of
dollars of technology, and the power that once only belonged to major
publishing and media firms, into the hands of millions of writers- entirely
for free."                                                                             ~Glenn Leibowitz

"No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader.  No surprise in the writer,
no surprise in the reader."                                                           ~Robert Frost

"How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live."
                                                                                           ~Henry David Thoreau

"The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself."
                                                                                                     ~Albert Camus

"A good writer possesses not only his own spirit but also the spirit of his
friends."                                                                              ~Friedrich Nietzsche

"To produce a mighty book, you must choose a might theme."
                                                                                                    ~Herman Melville


"You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and
the creation of different words on a page.  Writing comes from reading, and
(still called "leaves") imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles.  One glance
at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for
thousands of years.  Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly
and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the
greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant
epochs, who never knew one another.  Books break the shackles of time-
proof that humans can work magic."                                             ~Carl Sagan

Morning Jane.

Looks like the gremlins have infested your comment area.  Hope you have a great Sunday, I know I will.  Good luck on the books, BTW, what will you be writing about, or is that a secret?

Good morning Jane. It was in the 20's last evening for touring The Lincoln Park Zoo - Zoo Lights. The hot chocolate was excellent as usual. As for by favorite quote:

"Start writing, no matter what.  The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on."
