Writing


-- Quote of the Day -- 

(on writing)

“…The most important part of writing is re-writing – not taking away the excitement but taking the extra words away. …It is important for writers to put something away for a week or a month and then come back to it and cut and cut and change six adjectives to one perfect one. …If you finish a chapter you sometimes get the feeling it is done, so leave it before the end of the chapter so that you can come back and start again. Never get the feeling, as a writer, that you are done. …Editors will often make changes, and sometimes without your permission. …But the person you have to satisfy is yourself.”

~ Francine Trevens

Today’s quote originates from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio episode titled: Childhood Literacy
