WordPress Writing Quotes Savored, Saved, and Shared

Have you noticed that after publishing your post that there is a little WordPress cheerleader encouraging you to keep going towards a set goal? It’s like eating a box of CrackerJacks and receiving the prize after crunching through the carmeled popcorn and suffering the candied peanuts: aah! joyous satisfactory reward (loved the whistles, especially). So, in celebration of reaching my stunning and surprisingly 25th posting I shall share the rewards of doing so.  Here is my first collection of WordPress Writing Quotes which I have savored, saved, and now share with you:


The best way to become acquainted with a subject is to write a book about it.— Benjamin Disraeli

 I so agree.  As I have struggled to complete books started I have learned more than I ever anticipated about Idaho’s gold rush, cows, thoughts teenage girls have about NaNoWriMo, and young men trying to overcome bad attitudes and worse friendships.

Writing is a struggle against silence. Carlos FuentesHead and shoulders photo of a greying man with a small moustache, wearing a suit, arms folded. 

Oh, that dreaded silence of recalcitrant ideas.  To coax them into speaking and leaping from their shadowed hiding onto the page.

Proofread carefully to see if you any words out. Author Unknown

Often I’ve found when I think I’ve edited, proofread, and revised and posted my words for the world two see I’ve missed something oh so glaringly.

If the writing is honest it cannot be separated from the man who wrote it. Tennessee Williams

 (virtual tip of hat) Here’s to truth–may all writers strive for its sweet essence to sweeten the words upon our pages

Words, once they are printed, have a life of their own. Carol Burnett

It’s an old analogy, yet one that has great validity–our words tend to breathe once they step out and leave their footprints upon the page.

 I try to leave out the parts that people skip .Elmore Leonard

I had included  Mr. Leonard’s quote in my Writerly Wisdom collection before gleaning it from the WordPress quote crop.  What a goal to which one could aspire: leaving out the parts readers not interested in reading.

To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart. Phyllis Theroux

The other side of sending off a letter, is the delight of going to the mailbox and pulling one out.  That moment of anticipatory pause before releasing the contents within, that bit of wait before sharing the thoughts of another heart is true joy especially when the letter bears the name of someone dear.

To many more happy postings, readings, and sharings.

Blue skies,
