Thoughts for 'The Writing Life'


“If you’re a singer, you might lose your voice.  A baseball player loses his arm.  But a writer gets more knowledge, and if he’s good, the older he gets, the better he writes.” – Mickey Spillane
 
*** 
“Actors are good liars; writers are good liars with good memories.” – Daniel Keys Moran 

***
“It's hard to say how certain stories just punch us in the heart and the brain at the same time at the end. I suppose that's what we're all looking for. But each story has its own valence, its own way of saying goodbye to you.” – T. C. Boyle 

***
“If you ask 20 different readers why they read, the answers they give will all be right.” –  Teresa Nielsen Hayden

***
When all’s said and done, all roads lead to the same end.  So it’s not so much which road you take, as how you take it. – Charles de Lint

 
I awoke feeling a bit nostalgic about this so-called “writing life” and thought it would be a good day to share a few nostalgic (and somewhat profound) words by writers I’ve enjoyed.   May your “Writer’s Moments” bring you happiness along life’s roads.
