“Writing Muscle”

A gathering of writerly wisdom to spur on on our way today:

“Amateurs look for inspiration. The rest of us get up and go to work.” Chuck Close

“You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.” Jack London

“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.” Jim Rohan

“It is only by writing, not dreaming about it, that we develop our own style.” P.D. James

“Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up.” Jane Yolen

“I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true—hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.” Ray Bradbury

“Planning to write is not writing. Outlining a book is not writing. Research is not writing. Tasking to people about what you’re doing, non of that is writing. Writing is writing.” E.L. Doctorow

“Prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well.” Louisa May Alcott

“Do what you can where your are with what you have.” Teddy Roosevelt

And now, inspired and energized, let’s all write on!
