order to write; a man will turn over half a library to make
one book. - Samuel Johnson
If you read good books, when you write, good books will
come out of you. - Natalie Goldberg
Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to
read them at all.
- Henry David Thoreau, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers
There's nothing wrong with reading a book you love over
and over. When you do, the words get inside you, become a
part of you, in a way that words in a book you've read only
once can't. - Gail Carson Levine, Writing Magic: Creating Stories that Fly
You should write because you love the shape of stories and
sentences and the creation of different words on a page.
Writing comes from reading, and reading is the finest teacher
of how to write. - E. Annie Proulx
Read. Read 1000 pages for every 1 page that you write.
- Sherman Alexie
