The E.L. Doctorow one in the middle is my favorite because it’s the one that I find myself faced with the most often. I tend to procrastinate and wander and do a lot of things in the name of writing that aren’t really writing, so maybe having that quote right in my face will help to break the habit and get back to typing words a little bit!
Runners up that nearly made the board…
“Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards.” — Robert Heinlein
“Stories may well be lies, but they are good lies that say true things, and which can sometimes pay the rent.” — Neil Gaiman
“You can make anything by writing.” — C.S. Lewis
