Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
Learn as much by writing as by reading.
If any man wish to write in a clear style, let him be first clear in his thoughts; and if any would write in a noble style, let him first possess a noble soul.
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Quantity produces quality. If you only write a few things, you’re doomed.
The way you define yourself as a writer is that you write every time you have a free minute. If you didn’t behave that way you would never do anything.
Write without pay until somebody offers to pay.
Substitute “damn” every time you’re inclined to write “very;” your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.
