Some Words on Words

And now, for something completely different, a little writing levity. I stumbled on this blog post by Mark Terry over at This Writing Life collecting quotes on writing. They are brilliant and applicable to all types of writing. Some of my favs include:

“He can compress the most words into the smallest idea of any man I know.” –Abraham Lincoln

“In the same way that a woman becomes a prostitute. First I did it to please myself, then I did it to please my friends, and finally I did it for money.” Ferenc Molnar (1878-1952) when asked how he became a writer.

“There are two things wrong with almost all legal writing. One is its style. The other is its content.”–Fred Rodell (1907-1980)

Oh, just head on over there – they are all fabulous!
