Writerly Wisdom

Writerly words of wisdom I wanted to share with you today:

“Let each day’s work absorb your entire energies, and satisfy your widest ambition.”         William Osler

“As we approach an experience that should be fun, we should remain open to its possibilities. We should not let ourselves be adversely influenced by what others say or by what we say to ourselves about it.”   Stewart W. Holmes

“I have never understood why ‘hard work’ is supposed to be pitiable. True, some work is soul-destroying when it is done against the grain, but when it is part of a ‘making’ how can you begrudge it? You get tired, of course, often despair, but the struggle, the challenge, the feeling of being extended as you never thought you could be is fulfilling and deeply, deeply satisfying.” Rumer Godden

“Those who write clearly have readers, those who write obscurely, have commentators.”     Albert Camus

“No one who can write decently is distrustful of the reader’s intelligence …. E.B. White

“Writing is a matter of craft and know-how, yes, but also a matter of tenacious faith. And closely related to faith — perhaps rising from it — are all those virtues of courage, hope, steadfastness of intention, caritas, for the process, the journey itself.”   Joanna Higgins

“…It is the business of the writer to hide the fact that writing is his business. Readers are not interested in the mechanics of authorship.”   A. A. Milne

“If you are in difficulties with a book, try the element of surprise. Attack it an an hour when it isn’t expecting it.”   H. G. Wells

“Thinking is the activity I love best and writing to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.”   Isaac Asimov

May these writerly musings inspire and inspirit us today as we all write on!
