My Theme: Tips and Inspirational Quotes for Writers


R for Rowling

English: Created by modifying this image Itali...
 “Be ruthless about protecting writing days, i.e., do not cave in to endless requests to have “essential” and “long overdue” meetings on those days. The funny thing is that, although writing has been my actual job for several years now, I still seem to have to fight for time in which to do it. Some people do not seem to grasp that I still have to sit down in peace and write the books, apparently believing that they pop up like mushrooms without my connivance. I must therefore guard the time allotted to writing as a Hungarian Horntail guards its firstborn egg.”

- J K Rowling

  2. It's nice to see Indies aren't the only ones having to make writing time :). If only we could all takes what's in our brains and put in on paper without effort ... actually, scrap that, I hate to think what would end up on my paper ;)

  3. Rowling is such an inspiration--from the way she struggled to get published to what she has done with her life since. She's an impressive lady.
