The funny thing about writing is, although you are writing about an experience which only you have had, you are trying to welcome other people into it, and there are ways I think of doing this, and one of them is through the senses, through the sounds and the smells.Ronald Frame Writing Funny Sayings By Ronald Frame: The funny thing about writing is, although you are writing about an experience which only

Writing about why you write is a funny business, like scratching what doesn't itch.

Impulses
I'm writing a book about Siamese Twins that are attached at the nose. It's called: Stop Staring at Me!Zach Galifianakis Writing Funny Sayings By Zach Galifianakis: I'm writing a book about Siamese Twins that are attached at the nose. It's called:

The word circled comfortably in my mouth like bubble gum, swished around sweetly soft
Be serious. Life hurts. Reflect what hurts. I don't mean that you can't also be funny, or have fun, but at the end of the day, stories are about what you lose.John Irving Writing Funny Sayings By John Irving: Be serious. Life hurts. Reflect what hurts. I don't mean that you can't also be
Ooh!" Willy pipes up. "Maybe he'll write a story about Santa and Mrs. Claus getting caught with their pants down with other people. If we get lucky, maybe he'll kill-"

"Don't finish that sentence, elf."

"Randy, you're such a spoilsport. You can't say you haven't conjured up that scenario in your big head a time or a dozen. Continue. Maybe I'll write that story."

"No, you won't. Your idea of a good story is nothing but sex, sex, and more sex. You'd never make it through writing a chapter because you'd have to stop and jerk off a half dozen times."

"Ew! Not about Santa and Mrs. Claus. Yuck," Willy comes back at him with a sour look on his face. "That's not even funny, Randy.
Candi Kay Writing Funny Sayings By Candi Kay: Ooh!" Willy pipes up. "Maybe he'll write a story about Santa and Mrs. Claus getting
What's funny about that is when I was writing Twilight just for myself and not thinking of it as a book, I was not thinking about publishing, and yet at the same time I was casting it in my head. Because when I read books, I see them very visually.Stephenie Meyer Writing Funny Sayings By Stephenie Meyer: What's funny about that is when I was writing Twilight just for myself and not
It sounds funny, but I always try to keep an open mind about what I'm writing about. Sometimes I squeak my opinions in there, but generally I don't. I try to be objective about things that I'm writing about.John Mellencamp Writing Funny Sayings By John Mellencamp: It sounds funny, but I always try to keep an open mind about what I'm
Panicky despair is an underrated element of writing.Dave Barry Writing Funny Sayings By Dave Barry: Panicky despair is an underrated element of writing.
There is a whole genre of funny travel writers - that's very popular. There's Bill Bryson and people who follow that route and sell travel writing through making people laugh. It's a very difficult group to take. The line between comedy and mockery is sometimes a bit thin.John Gimlette Writing Funny Sayings By John Gimlette: There is a whole genre of funny travel writers - that's very popular. There's Bill
Sometimes my humor does offend people, and I've said it before: I don't write jokes to be offensive. I write jokes to be funny, and I guess what I find funny are things that other people sometimes find offensive. I would love nothing more than to never offend anyone, but it just doesn't seem to work out that way.Moshe Kasher Writing Funny Sayings By Moshe Kasher: Sometimes my humor does offend people, and I've said it before: I don't write jokes
Crime writers, I've noticed, can be jumpy. They live in a world where there are murderers on the loose and they haven't been caught yet!Sara Sheridan Writing Funny Sayings By Sara Sheridan: Crime writers, I've noticed, can be jumpy. They live in a world where there are
Not intending to be funny: I sit at the keyboard, put my fingers on the keys and go. To me, it's the real secret of writing. Put yourself in front of the screen or the blank sheet of paper and get to work.Robin Hobb Writing Funny Sayings By Robin Hobb: Not intending to be funny: I sit at the keyboard, put my fingers on the
I like to tell kids that I started thinking about stories when I first started reading stuff like Dr. Seuss and 'Go, Dog. Go!,' thinking, 'Oh yeah, that's funny. I'd like to do that.' And then writing throughout school, but at the same time I was studying pre-med stuff, because my mom told me I should be a doctor.Jon Scieszka Writing Funny Sayings By Jon Scieszka: I like to tell kids that I started thinking about stories when I first started
Like with 'Parks and Recreation,' it's so much fun because the people writing it are funny and they're open and you just go in there and have a good time. It's pretty much the easiest job I've ever had.Aziz Ansari Writing Funny Sayings By Aziz Ansari: Like with 'Parks and Recreation,' it's so much fun because the people writing it are
But the three hundred and sixty-five authors who try to write new fairy tales are very tiresome. They always begin with a little boy or girl who goes out and meets the fairies of polyanthuses and gardenias and apple blossoms: 'Flowers and fruits, and other winged things.' These fairies try to be funny, and fail; or they try to preach, and succeed.Andrew Lang Writing Funny Sayings By Andrew Lang: But the three hundred and sixty-five authors who try to write new fairy tales are
I love writing both fiction and memoir. Both have unique challenges; bottom line, fiction is hard because you have to come up with the credible, twisty plot, and memoir is hard because you have to say something true and profound, albeit in a funny way.Lisa Scottoline Writing Funny Sayings By Lisa Scottoline: I love writing both fiction and memoir. Both have unique challenges; bottom line, fiction is
To me, writing is remembering something funny that happened, or maybe something I said seven years ago.Matthew Perry Writing Funny Sayings By Matthew Perry: To me, writing is remembering something funny that happened, or maybe something I said seven
I got it! I got it!" Heeb declared triumphantly. Evan stopped in the middle of his kitchenette to hear Heeb's idea.
"Sex in the Title."
"Yeah, that's what you've been saying I need."
"No, that's the title: 'Sex in the Title.'"
"You want me to call my novel 'Sex in the Title?'"
"Yeah. Isn't it great?
Zack Love Writing Funny Sayings By Zack Love: I got it! I got it!" Heeb declared triumphantly. Evan stopped in the middle of
I'm getting older, so how people face grave circumstances is of interest to me. And you meet a lot of people who are very courageous, and it doesn't reek of something funny to write about, but I always think that the higher the stakes, the bigger the laughs can be, and the more emotional the scenes can be.Judd Apatow Writing Funny Sayings By Judd Apatow: I'm getting older, so how people face grave circumstances is of interest to me. And
You have to understand that people feel threatened by a writer. It's very curious. He knows something they don't know. He knows how to write, and that's a subtle, disturbing quality he has. Some directors without even knowing it, resent the writer in the same way Bob Hope might resent the fact he ain't funny without twelve guys writing the jokes. The director knows the script he is carrying around on the set every day was written by someone, and that's just not something that all directors easily digest.Ernest Lehman Writing Funny Sayings By Ernest Lehman: You have to understand that people feel threatened by a writer. It's very curious. He
And, you know, I liked writing humor. Well, I should say, I wanted to write seriously, but it kept turning funny.Roseanne Barr Writing Funny Sayings By Roseanne Barr: And, you know, I liked writing humor. Well, I should say, I wanted to write
Given the current state of publishing, I think it helps to have a brand name on the cover of your book. Comedians are proven commodities with built-in audiences. They may not have the writing chops of a Dave Eggers, but they're salacious and funny and self-reflective.Michael Showalter Writing Funny Sayings By Michael Showalter: Given the current state of publishing, I think it helps to have a brand name
Writing for young children I find I often use particular jokes with words and exaggerated, funny events, but some of these haunt the more complex stories for older children too.Margaret Mahy Writing Funny Sayings By Margaret Mahy: Writing for young children I find I often use particular jokes with words and exaggerated,
There was a time when a book could be sold purely because its author had been to distant climes and had returned to tell of the exotic sights he had seen. That author was Marco Polo, and the time was the thirteenth century.Howard Mittelmark Writing Funny Sayings By Howard Mittelmark: There was a time when a book could be sold purely because its author had
The important thing for any writer to remember is to take the writing seriously, but not the writer.A.E. Poynor Writing Funny Sayings By A.E. Poynor: The important thing for any writer to remember is to take the writing seriously, but
It's funny when you write a song - it's easy for me now - but there's almost a second stage where you take control of the song. You start writing it, and if you're not careful, it just finishes itself and it might not be what you wanted. It's very strange, it takes over itself. It has its own life.Kate Bush Writing Funny Sayings By Kate Bush: It's funny when you write a song - it's easy for me now - but
Bad writing, it is easily verified, has never kept scholarship from being published.Jacques Barzun Writing Funny Sayings By Jacques Barzun: Bad writing, it is easily verified, has never kept scholarship from being published.
My stories take three or four months to fix, and it's not magical of a process. Ultimately it's a boring, difficult process. I write everything out, and then the parts I think are funny I put in bold. Then I go perform it. Then the parts that aren't funny, I unbold them.Kumail Nanjiani Writing Funny Sayings By Kumail Nanjiani: My stories take three or four months to fix, and it's not magical of a
You know how it is with writing. You just write what you want to write. There's no way to predict what is good or bad. You just do what you think is funny, and either it works or you're finished. It's impossible to predict anything.Colin Quinn Writing Funny Sayings By Colin Quinn: You know how it is with writing. You just write what you want to write.
If you write well, you don't have to dress funny.James Dickey Writing Funny Sayings By James Dickey: If you write well, you don't have to dress funny.
In real life, couples bond and war over a million different things. The causes of divorce are like beautiful, unique snowflakes.Howard Mittelmark Writing Funny Sayings By Howard Mittelmark: In real life, couples bond and war over a million different things. The causes of
Be ruthless about protecting writing days, i.e., do not cave in to endless requests to have "essential" and "long overdue" meetings on those days. The funny thing is that, although writing has been my actual job for several years now, I still seem to have to fight for time in which to do it. Some people do not seem to grasp that I still have to sit down in peace and write the books, apparently believing that they pop up like mushrooms without my connivance. I must therefore guard the time allotted to writing as a Hungarian Horntail guards its firstborn egg.J.K. Rowling Writing Funny Sayings By J.K. Rowling: Be ruthless about protecting writing days, i.e., do not cave in to endless requests to
We have a habit in writing articles published in scientific journals to make the work as finished as possible, to cover up all the tracks, to not worry about the blind alleys or describe how you had the wrong idea first, and so on. So there isn't any place to publish, in a dignified manner, what you actually did in order to get to do the work, although, there has been in these days, some interest in this kind, thing.Richard P. Feynman Writing Funny Sayings By Richard P. Feynman: We have a habit in writing articles published in scientific journals to make the work
A funny little literary article in the hand is worth at least three Critiques of Pure Reason in the bush.Aldous Huxley Writing Funny Sayings By Aldous Huxley: A funny little literary article in the hand is worth at least three Critiques of
I remember calling the council's cemetery department to ask about body decomposition in different soil types. Once they had verified that I was a novelist and not a sicko, they were extremely helpful.Sara Sheridan Writing Funny Sayings By Sara Sheridan: I remember calling the council's cemetery department to ask about body decomposition in different soil
Unfortunately, this is so obviously a convention of bad fiction that it might as well read, 'Looking in the mirror, Joe saw a tall, brown-haired man, trapped in a poorly written novel.Howard Mittelmark Writing Funny Sayings By Howard Mittelmark: Unfortunately, this is so obviously a convention of bad fiction that it might as well
I want my online content to be so good that Google's web crawler stops and says "Dayyyum son!Ryan Lilly Writing Funny Sayings By Ryan Lilly: I want my online content to be so good that Google's web crawler stops and
I believe the term "blog" means more than an online journal. I believe a blog is a conversation. People go to blogs to read AND write, not just consume.Michael Arrington Writing Funny Sayings By Michael Arrington: I believe the term "blog" means more than an online journal. I believe a blog
We've got a bunch of new writers now who tell me they grew up watching The Simpsons. It's bizarre, and they're writing some very funny stuff.Matt Groening Writing Funny Sayings By Matt Groening: We've got a bunch of new writers now who tell me they grew up watching
My father is doing a radio program - classical music. He has a beautiful speaking voice and that's his passion in life, his music. My mother lives in Melbourne and is an avid photographer. She's also started writing for a magazine out there and she submits poems, very funny ones, and articles. In some way or other, my family is always doing something with the media.Olivia Newton-John Writing Funny Sayings By Olivia Newton-John: My father is doing a radio program - classical music. He has a beautiful speaking
Gilbert would never have dreamed of writing a sonnet to her eyebrows. But then, Gilbert could see a joke. She had once told Roy a funny story - and he had not seen the point of it. She recalled the chummy laugh she and Gilbert had had together over it, and wondered uneasily if life with a man who had no sense of humor might not be somewhat uninteresting in the long run. But who could expect a melancholy, inscrutable hero to see the humorous side of things? It would be flatly unreasonable.L.M. Montgomery Writing Funny Sayings By L.M. Montgomery: Gilbert would never have dreamed of writing a sonnet to her eyebrows. But then, Gilbert
Comedy is serious - deadly serious. Never, never try to be funny! The actors must be serious. Only the situation must be absurd. Funny is in the writing, not in the performing. If the situation isn't absurd, no amount of joke will help.Mel Brooks Writing Funny Sayings By Mel Brooks: Comedy is serious - deadly serious. Never, never try to be funny! The actors must
Women can do anything men can do. Except math, chess, running, jumping, lifting stuff, fixing things, making money, hockey, surfing, driving, making decisions, being tall, taking out the garbage, tipping, fishing, being funny (on purpose), reading a map, listening to good bands, writing, running the country, inventing anything important, or being fun to hang out with.Daniel Tosh Writing Funny Sayings By Daniel Tosh: Women can do anything men can do. Except math, chess, running, jumping, lifting stuff, fixing
Don't be silly. I'll write you twice a week.Groucho Marx Writing Funny Sayings By Groucho Marx: Don't be silly. I'll write you twice a week.
I don't know that I make a big distinction between the big pieces and the little pieces, because I don't experience them in that way. I mean, by the same token, you're out touring with a band and then you're writing string quartets, and in a funny way, isn't it all the same, in a way? It's all just music.Philip Glass Writing Funny Sayings By Philip Glass: I don't know that I make a big distinction between the big pieces and the
Where did the stereotypical image of the reclusive author in a bathrobe and slippers, indulging in vices and spending hours before a typewriter, even come from? I don't know about you, but most writers don't have the luxury of doing any of this. Otherwise we'd have no life experience and nothing to write about, anyway.Rebecca McNutt Writing Funny Sayings By Rebecca McNutt: Where did the stereotypical image of the reclusive author in a bathrobe and slippers, indulging
And then, movie-wise, I'm writing a couple of things. They're all comedies. It's the only way I know. I'm also being sent scripts, which is really nice, kind of off the back of this, so I don't necessarily have to generate my own stuff. I'm just looking for something that's explosively funny and relatable in equal measure.Dan Mazer Writing Funny Sayings By Dan Mazer: And then, movie-wise, I'm writing a couple of things. They're all comedies. It's the only
So, reader, should you ever find yourself writing about the world, take care not to nibble at the many tempting symbols she sets squarely in your path, or you'll be baited into saying things you don't really mean, and offending the people you want most to entertain. Develop, if you can, the technique of the pall bearers and myself: smile, to be sure
for fucking dogs are truly funny
but walk on and say nothing, as though you hadn't noticed.
John Barth Writing Funny Sayings By John Barth: So, reader, should you ever find yourself writing about the world, take care not to
When the reader has stopped to wonder at your delamificatious vocabulary, or, worse, when the reader has stopped because the word you've used has no more meaning to him than a random ptliijnbvc of letters, the reader is not involved in your story ... Generally, saying 'edifice' instead of 'building' doesn't tell your reader anything about the building; it tells the reader that you know that word edifice.Howard Mittelmark Writing Funny Sayings By Howard Mittelmark: When the reader has stopped to wonder at your delamificatious vocabulary, or, worse, when the
As an actor you get categorized by other people, but it's not like I arrange myself into comedy mode or serious mode. If it's good writing you just have to play it true - if it's funny, it's funny. But obviously you don't want it to be amusing if you're playing Hedda Gabler!Sophie Thompson Writing Funny Sayings By Sophie Thompson: As an actor you get categorized by other people, but it's not like I arrange
The fact that I'm shouting that I have Gangnam style makes people crack up. Imagine if Brad Pitt was singing the song - would it be funny? A twist is important when it comes to writing lyrics.Psy Writing Funny Sayings By Psy: The fact that I'm shouting that I have Gangnam style makes people crack up. Imagine
People forget how outcast 'They Might Be Giants' can be. They have a reputation for writing really deft, funny, clever melodies, and they also make a lot of music for kids, which is terrific, but when you see them in concert, they can rock the house.John Hodgman Writing Funny Sayings By John Hodgman: People forget how outcast 'They Might Be Giants' can be. They have a reputation for
Would you like me to write Mrs. Ames about inviting you to Yaddo? Get Miss Moore to write too. You can't invite yourself, though, of course, almost all the invitations are planned. It would be marvelous to have you there. I know the solitude that gets too much. It doesn't drug me, but I get fantastic and uncivilized.
At last my divorce [from Jean Stafford] is over. It's funny at my age to have one's life so much in and on one's hands. All the rawness of learning, what I used to think should be done with by twenty-five. Sometimes nothing is so solid to me as writing - I suppose that's what vocation means - at times a torment, a bad conscience, but all in all, purpose and direction, so I'm thankful, and call it good, as Eliot would say.
Robert Lowell Writing Funny Sayings By Robert Lowell: Would you like me to write Mrs. Ames about inviting you to Yaddo? Get Miss
You know, I think some people fear that if they like the wrong kind of book, it will reflect poorly on them. It can go with genre, too. Somebody will say, "I won't read science fiction, or I won't read young adult novels" - all of those genres can become prisons. I always find it funny when the serious literary world will make a little crack in its wall and allow in one pet genre writer and crown them and say, "Well Elmore Leonard is actually a real writer." Or "Stephen King is actually a really good writer." Generally speaking, you know you're being patronized when somebody uses the word "actuallyElizabeth Gilbert Writing Funny Sayings By Elizabeth Gilbert: You know, I think some people fear that if they like the wrong kind of
I wasn't a class clown, I just found at an early age that I was able to make people laugh. So I mostly wrote funny stuff instead of writing what I was supposed to be writing.Alan Zweibel Writing Funny Sayings By Alan Zweibel: I wasn't a class clown, I just found at an early age that I was
I loved writing for the school newspaper. I liked to report and interview people, but I really liked to write columns, funny columns.Bonnie Jo Campbell Writing Funny Sayings By Bonnie Jo Campbell: I loved writing for the school newspaper. I liked to report and interview people, but
It's so funny that people think I actually ran for President. I am maybe the most un-political person you're ever going to meet. When I put "Elected" out, it was definitely a satire ... "Alice Cooper for President" ... when everybody realized I was running against Nixon, you known, even on a joke level, I think I got a lot of write-in votes.Alice Cooper Writing Funny Sayings By Alice Cooper: It's so funny that people think I actually ran for President. I am maybe the
I bet there are a lot of women out there who want to sleep with a guy who reads. And being the head of the reading foundation, I'm very well endowed.Bauvard Writing Funny Sayings By Bauvard: I bet there are a lot of women out there who want to sleep with
I would say just start writing. You've got to write every day. Copy someone that you like if you think that perhaps could become your sound, too. I did that with Hemingway, and I thought I was writing just like Hemingway. Then all of a sudden it occurred to me - he didn't have a sense of humor. I don't know anything he's written that's funny.Elmore Leonard Writing Funny Sayings By Elmore Leonard: I would say just start writing. You've got to write every day. Copy someone that
He was all emotion all the time, constantly talking about his feelings and his profound love for her. He was minutes from getting his first period. He wrote poems too. It's my personal belief that if men are writing poems, they're making up for something else like a big hair back, or one ball. Not that one ball is a bad thing. Especially since I don't know any females who are dying to their their hands on a set of balls. The way I see it, the less balls, the better.Chelsea Handler Writing Funny Sayings By Chelsea Handler: He was all emotion all the time, constantly talking about his feelings and his profound
The first problem of any kind of even limited success is the unshakable conviction that you are getting away with something, and that at any moment now they will discover you. It's Imposter Syndrome, something my wife Amanda christened The Fraud Police.

In my case, I was convinced that there would be a knock on the door, and a man with a clipboard (I don't know why he carried a clipboard, in my head, but he did) would be there, to tell me it was all over, and they had caught up with me, and now I would have to go and get a real job, one that didn't consist of making things up and writing them down, and reading books I wanted to read.
Neil Gaiman Writing Funny Sayings By Neil Gaiman: The first problem of any kind of even limited success is the unshakable conviction that
Err on the side of awesome.Brandon Sanderson Writing Funny Sayings By Brandon Sanderson: Err on the side of awesome.
Toyin Falola has given us what is truly rare in modern African writing: a seriously funny, racy, irreverent package of memories, and full of the most wonderful pieces of poetry and ordinary information. It is a matter of some interest, that the only other volume A Mouth Sweeter Than Salt reminds one of is Ake, by Wole Soyinka. What is it about these Yorubas?Ama Ata Aidoo Writing Funny Sayings By Ama Ata Aidoo: Toyin Falola has given us what is truly rare in modern African writing: a seriously
The funny thing is, about the time I let go of any aspiration toward worldly success, that's about the time I started writing decent work.Ben Fountain Writing Funny Sayings By Ben Fountain: The funny thing is, about the time I let go of any aspiration toward worldly
In comedy you sometimes have to look at the funny bone a little bit. So, that was the hardest part - was not offending. I'm not laughing at anybody. We're laughing together about who we are - and the funnier part of who we are. I'm (sure) not writing this and calling you a stereotype. I'm not doing that.Corbin Bernsen Writing Funny Sayings By Corbin Bernsen: In comedy you sometimes have to look at the funny bone a little bit. So,
So much of the humor on new sitcoms plays to the lowest common denominator. Wit isn't nearly given as much attention as slipping on a banana peel. So much of the writing is so coarse, so obvious that it doesn't provide a shock, never mind a laugh. What makes something funny is alluding to it without laying it out explicitly. You let the audiences fill in the gaps and that's where the laughs come.Betty White Writing Funny Sayings By Betty White: So much of the humor on new sitcoms plays to the lowest common denominator. Wit
With these Funny or Die videos, I do everything for them. I write them, act in them, and co-direct them with my buddy Brian McGinn, who I grew up with. We also edit them together. We're working on a small scale of Internet videos, but we're slowly trying to make them become a bigger thing.Dave Franco Writing Funny Sayings By Dave Franco: With these Funny or Die videos, I do everything for them. I write them, act
Part of my soul goes into each quote I write. A book of my quotes can be yours for just $19.99.Ryan Lilly Writing Funny Sayings By Ryan Lilly: Part of my soul goes into each quote I write. A book of my quotes
It's funny when you start writing an album and then recording - the songs begin to take on a spirit of their own. Once you start to perform it live, this happens even more so than in the studio. They really start to develop a personality that takes shape over time with the audience.Matt Shultz Writing Funny Sayings By Matt Shultz: It's funny when you start writing an album and then recording - the songs begin
Deeply funny musings and adventures elevate Paul Rudnick to the highest level of American comedy writing.Steve Martin Writing Funny Sayings By Steve Martin: Deeply funny musings and adventures elevate Paul Rudnick to the highest level of American comedy
The usual example given to illustrate an Outside Context Problem was imagining you were a tribe on a largish, fertile island; you'd tamed the land, invented the wheel or writing or whatever, the neighbours were cooperative or enslaved but at any rate peaceful and you were busy raising temples to yourself with all the excess productive capacity you had, you were in a position of near-absolute power and control which your hallowed ancestors could hardly have dreamed of and the whole situation was just running along nicely like a canoe on wet grass ... when suddenly this bristling lump of iron appears sailless and trailing steam in the bay and these guys carrying long funny-looking sticks come ashore and announce you've just been discovered, you're all subjects of the Emperor now, he's keen on presents called tax and these bright-eyed holy men would like a word with your priests.Iain Banks Writing Funny Sayings By Iain Banks: The usual example given to illustrate an Outside Context Problem was imagining you were a
When I write, it feels like there are two little creatures that sit on each of my shoulders. One whispers, "You can do this. You've got what it takes." The other sounds like my mother-in-law.Carla H. Krueger Writing Funny Sayings By Carla H. Krueger: When I write, it feels like there are two little creatures that sit on each
The funny thing is, the music that I'm writing now is probably some of the most cutting edge we've ever done. The music that I'm thinking about putting on our next album.Charlie Daniels Writing Funny Sayings By Charlie Daniels: The funny thing is, the music that I'm writing now is probably some of the
I love humor in writing, so I've written to the thing that's funny, there's the joke, but then I just kept going. I started thinking about all the bikes I've had stolen, and that got me thinking about crime, and that got me thinking about the city I'm in.Jess Walter Writing Funny Sayings By Jess Walter: I love humor in writing, so I've written to the thing that's funny, there's the
Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch.Lili St. Crow Writing Funny Sayings By Lili St. Crow: Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins.
This situation was a heart attack waiting to happen. He just knew it. The stress of the job, now this. Yep, he was going to keel over. He could see the writing on his tombstone now: Sloane Brodie departed this world at age 37 due to massive coronary trauma as a result of idiot partner Dexter J. Daley.
--Sloane
Charlie Cochet Writing Funny Sayings By Charlie Cochet: This situation was a heart attack waiting to happen. He just knew it. The stress
Someone once said writing and gardening are similar pursuits. Tell you what, I'd have one fucked up garden if that were the case.Carla H. Krueger Writing Funny Sayings By Carla H. Krueger: Someone once said writing and gardening are similar pursuits. Tell you what, I'd have one
I like to skip prewriting. I love just jumping into the actual writing process. Then I revise/edit and fix what I need to. Then the following steps; proofread and publish. Of course before you just go into writing, it would be a good idea to do some charts of each chapter ... what you would want each one to be about and have a character list with their personalities and how they will come into play in your book. I mean, you wouldn't just want to go all crazy and jot down all kinds of random stuff at once ... trust me, you'll go crazy.
