Gertrude Stein on Writing

keeponwriting“Write without thinking of the result
in terms of a result,
but think of the writing
in terms of discovery,

which is to say that creation
must take place
between the pen and the paper,

not before in a thought
or afterwards in a recasting…

It will come if it is there
and if you will let it come.”

Gertrude Stein

Eric M Witchery on agendas …

“…at any given moment in a story, every character is working
on at least three agendas—three levels of desire: An overall agenda,
which tends to consist of broad hopes—life goals. A scene agenda,
which is the result a character hopes to achieve in a scene. A
compulsive agenda, which is a deeper, hidden need.”

-Eric M. Witchey in an article in The Writer, September 2007

Quote of the day

“I think it’s important to have a goal—
either page count or time—and stick to it.
Consistency and discipline is key.”

-Allison Brennan in an article
in the Romance Writers Report, February 2008
