Do you have a favorite writing quote?
I've got gobs, but here are a few of my favorites:
"A writer must have all the confidence in the world when writing the first draft and none whatsoever when editing subsequent drafts." T. Davis Bunn
"Writing is easy. You just stare at the paper until blood drips from your forehead." Gene Fowler
"The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." Sylvia Plath (This one is currently stuck in the frame that holds my 2010 goals.)
"You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club." Jack London
"I write when I'm inspired, and I see to it that I'm inspired at nine o'clock every morning." Peter De Vries
"When you write, try to leave out all the parts readers skip." Elmore Leonard
Oh! One more . . .
"Success is going from one failure to the next without losing enthusiasm." Winston Churchill
CR: Blood Game by Iris Johansen.
It's all better with friends.
