1. “If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
2. “Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”
3. “Good books don’t give up all their secrets at once.”
4. “You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”
5. “The scariest moment is always just before you start.”
2. “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
3. “The first draft of anything is shit.”
4. “All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, thecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
5. “As a writer, you should not judge, you should understand.”

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” –Dr. Seuss
I thought I would put questions related to writing on these posts, but I absolutely love this quote. It means a lot to me; especially since I’ve been through so much change in my life (some good, some bad… but all ends up well in the end).
Dr. Seuss was an author though, so I figured that counted.
