#278; when the editor takes over

Copy editing has taken over my work and my personal writing these days, and so I bring you quotes about writer’s block, because it’s about all I’ve got these days!

  • “The easiest thing to do on earth is not write.” ~ William Goldman
  • “Meggie Folchart: Having writer’s block? Maybe I can help.
    Fenoglio: Oh yes, that’s right. You want to be a writer, don’t you?
    Meggie Folchart: You say that as if it’s a bad thing.
    Fenoglio: Oh no, it’s just a lonely thing. Sometimes the world you create on the page seems more friendly and alive than the world you actually live in.” ~ Cornelia Funke, Inkheart
  • “One of the most difficult things is the first paragraph. I have spent many months on a first paragraph.” ~ Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  • “Writing about a writer’s block is better than not writing at all.” ~ Charles Bukowski, The Last Night of the Earth Poem
